Christmas, 1985. As their families frantically prepare for the holidays, Juan and Benjamin are quietly busy scheming a daring coup. The two men plan to break into Mexico City’s National Museum of Anthropology, looting the institution of its most valuable artefacts, including the priceless funerary mask of Mayan ruler King Pakal. Pulling off the robbery with expert precision, the pair returns home to discover their crime is all over the national news and soon the sheer gravity of their actions begin to dawn on them. Loosely based on astounding real events, Alonso Ruizpalacios’ crafty follow-up to his acclaimed debut Güeros (LFF 2014) comes oozing with style and tension, taking its viewer on a wildly unpredictable journey and gleefully pushing the boundaries of the heist-movie genre.
