""Smart, tart, beautifully performed mini-epics of grievance escalating to a kind of sanctified madness." — Mary Corliss, TIME

A splendidly anarchic portrait of a world on the verge of a nervous breakdown fired by the undeniable pleasure of losing control. It is composed of six stand alone shorts of black, comic, nightmare united by a common theme of violence and unsuppressed rage. A collection of delicious, horrible, scary and scabrous stories from Argentina satirizing the country’s corruption, cynicism and complacency—wickedly hilarious and delightfully deranged.

Director's Notes [excerpt]

"These tales sprang from the most unrestrained corners of the imagination. While I was working to develop other projects – often dispirited by the fact that they were impossible to realize – I began writing a series of short stories to vent my frustrations. When I put them together in one volume, I realized that they were connected by a series of themes that provided unity and coherence: they were all about catharsis, vengeance and destruction. And the undeniable pleasure of losing control.

"A tinderbox of delights...."
— Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
