Movie Trailer

In Buenos Aires, the Molina family lives and works in the shadows of the legendary Boca Juniors stadium.
Selling fake tickets to the soccer games, they constantly get in conflict with the corrupt police.
As her family sinks deeper into this underworld, the mother tries in vain to keep them all from falling apart. 



«The film is a cinematic and intimate portrait of an extended family; revolving around a young father trapped between living and surviving in a place of decay with an unexpected destiny...»
— Jury Guanajuato Intl. Film Festival
«Cinema can elevate an everyday life situation, such as the one of a family living in the neighbourhood of a football stadium, to something that acquires a universal meaning with a profound sense of humanity, touching for the audience..»
— Jury Krakow Intl. Film Festival
«A film about counterfeits, which nonetheless shines with emotional truth, chronicles one man’s spiral into self-destruction in this remarkable documentary.»
— Jury Winterthur Intl. Short Film Festival
