    Carlos is a social worker at a center for juvenile justice, where his colleague Emiliano undermines his position. When the arrival of two boys reveals some administrative problems, both the Center and Carlos run into a crisis. With an acute sense of reality, the film takes a close look at the life in slums in Argentina, and depicts how people living there are tethered by despair that they can’t escape from. As a social worker, Carlos encounters various people who all face grim prospects, but is helpless to resolve their situations. He is not to blame however. By the end of the film, we understand that he is trying to get on with life despite the difficult circumstances, and become filled with awe and respect for his iron will. [KIM Youngjin]
