Relatively realistic plot, but poorly executed
Argentina is a country that produces a lot of cheap telenovelas (aka 'Spanish soap operas'), and that culture has a clear negative effect on how this movie was executed. The plot is pretty realistic, in that you'll find such stories in real life too ... or at least bits of them (especially the bits concerning the criminal world and the police), but apart from that, this movie is quite poor, like most Netflix movies nowadays. The movie relies too much on plot twists, parallel storylines or underdevelopped/vague/pointless subplots to generate viewer interest (just like a telenovela would), and less on good acting, clear ideas and emotional impact. This makes the movie too vague when it needs to explain stuff properly and too direct/raw when some emotion would help more.
Worth seeing only for the parts in the plot that are often encountered in similar real life scenarios. Can be skipped or fast forwarded if great acting, production or emotional impact is expected or desired by the viewer.
