"genre-film bliss … The storytelling confidence, unaffected acting, and, above all, a heightened grasp of plotting and logistics on display in 7 Boxes is astonishing." - Kurt Halfyard, Twitch

 

"a wild and cunningly plotted chase movie … rollicking entertainment" -Robert Koehler, Variety



 It's Friday night in Asuncion, Paraguay and the temperature is sweltering. Víctor, a 17-year-old wheelbarrow delivery boy, dreams of becoming famous absorbed in a fancy TV set at the infamous Mercado 4. He's offered a chance to deliver seven boxes with unknown contents in exchange for a quick US$100. But what sounds like an easy job soon gets complicated. Something in the boxes is highly coveted and Víctor and his pursuers quickly find themselves caught up in a crime they know nothing about.

Es viernes por la noche en Asunción, Paraguay y hace un calor sofocante. Víctor, un carretillero de 17 años, sueña con ser famoso absorto en la tele de un puesto de electrodomésticos en pleno Mercado 4. Ahí recibe la propuesta de transportar 7 cajas de las cuales desconoce su contenido, a cambio de cien dólares. Lo que suena como un trabajo fácil se complica rápidamente. Algo en las cajas es muy codiciado, y tanto Víctor como sus perseguidores pronto se encuentran al centro de un crimen del cuál nada saben.
