New Directors Competition
Swiss private banker Yvan De Wiel travels with his wife to Buenos Aires in the midst of the military dictatorship. He is searching for his partner René Keys, who was in charge of maintaining relations with wealthy Argentinean clients and has mysteriously disappeared. As he moves from exclusive receptions to private circles and luxury hotels while soldiers arrest bystanders in the streets, the discreet De Wiel must learn to interpret and speak the allusive language of a greater, darker power in order to take on his predecessor’s increasingly unclear role.
Presented at the Encounters section at Berlin International Film Festival.
