En las calles del barrio Flores de Buenos Aires una serie de personajes en situaciones extremas intenta sobrevivir al derrumbe de un pais y de sus terribles consecuencias.La crisis argentina obliga a un matrimonio mayor a aceptar un empleo como repartidores de pizzas con horario nocturno. Aldo y Rosita Peyro recorren las calles de Flores, un barrio de Buenos Aires, como dos adolescentes, dispuestos a plantar cara al desastre economico.En sus recorridos nocturnos ven de cerca las consecuencias directas de la crisis: delincuencia, familias que duermen en la calle, bandas juveniles haciendo destrozos, viejos y ninos abandonados, borrachos...Entre estos personajes y varias situaciones extremas destaca el secuestro y posterior asesinato de un nino, Jonathan, reflejo del horror subterraneo que sacude a toda la sociedad argentina. El caso de Jonathan es el detonante de una serie de actos corruptos en los que estan envueltos muchos de los amigos que acompanan a Aldo y Rosita en el reparto. Tambien hay instituciones mezcladas en dicho asunto, pero tal vez, aunque a priori parezca absurdo, un convento sea la clave del misterio..." ENGLISH DESCRIPTION In the streets of the Flores neighborhood in Buenos Aires, a series of characters in extreme situations tries to survive the collapse of a country and its terrible consequences.The Argentinean crisis obliges an older couple to take on a job delivering pizzas at night. Aldo and Rosita Peyro travel the streets of Flores, a neighborhood in Buenos Aires, like two teenagers, ready to face the economic disaster.In their nighttime journeys, they see up close the direct consequences of the crisis: crime, families sleeping in the street, gangs doing damage, abandoned elderly people and children, drunks, etc.Among these people and various extreme situations is the kidnapping and subsequent killing of a boy, Jonathan, a reflection of the underground horror shaking all of Argentinean society. Jonathan's case triggers a series of corrupt actions in which many of Aldo and Rosita's pizza delivery colleagues are involved. There are also institutions involved in the mix, but perhaps, though it might seem absurd, a convent could be the key to the mystery...
