SYNOPSIS: Christmas, 1985. Mexico City wakes to the news of the most spectacular crime in its history: the theft of over 160 iconic pieces from the National Museum of Anthropology. No one would suspect that the perpetrators sleep peacefully in the suburb of Ciudad Satélite: Juan Núñez and Benjamín Wilson, veterinary students and best friends. The magnitude of their crime exceeds their intentions and they leave the city in hopes of selling the stolen pieces.
