Heroic Losers

La Odisea de los Giles

Ricardo and Chino Darín come together for the first time as a father-son acting duo in HEROIC LOSERS, a heist dramedy that plays on the most basic human instinct: getting back what’s yours. With How to Steal a Million as a guide, Sebastián Borensztein (Chinese Take-Away) directs what will be the Argentinian film of the year.

Argentina, December 2001. A group of friends and neighbors pool together all of their savings to reactivate an agricultural cooperative and the economy of their small town. The day after they deposit the group’s money in the bank, Argentina’s economy and banking system collapses, and they lose it all. But they soon find out that they are not only victims of the country’s economic collapse, they have been scammed by an unscrupulous lawyer and bank manager who were poised to take advantage of the situation. In a twist on the heist film, this small town group of every men and women bands together  and puts a plan into action to recover what’s rightfully theirs.
