A fascinatingly disturbing and arrestingly stylish story about a serial killer, whose cherubic looks have earned him the title “The Angel of Death.” Young Carlitos always had his eye on other people’s things from a young age, but at age 17, he found his calling: theft. At a new school, he meets Ramon, to whom he is irresistibly attracted, and they become partners – at least in crime, if not in love. At first, murder is just collateral damage for them, but soon, violence and death become a true drug for Carlitos.

The film is based on the true story of Carlos Robledo Puch, who was arrested in 1972 for 11 murders and more than 40 robberies, and who is currently serving the longest prison sentence in the history of Argentina.
