Vicente, a college student on summer vacation, spends his days relaxing at the family beach house, drinking and flirting. Out partying one night, he piles into a car with new friends and winds up in a deadly hit-and-run accident. With his memory hazy and the others offering conflicting accounts, Vicente finds himself entangled in a criminal case and a corrupt system that closes ranks around the actual driver, the son of a prominent politician. Inspired by a recent incident, Alejandro Fernández Almendras constructs a scathing portrait of privileged youth and moral indifference. His depiction of a society with less regard for justice than the interests of its elite shrewdly draws us in by way of the charming Vicente (Agustín Silva), who coasts through life, his interests casual and fleeting. Even after the accident, Vicente shows more interest in sex, smoking weed, and texting than in his predicament. And nobody shows interest in the dead man; ironically, they see themselves as the victims. Here, the sun never sets on privilege, and only a lie can set you free.
