  • SINOPSE

    Alejandro Reynoso is a retired gambler who works for Pascual Palma, an older, wealthy businessman. Alejandro is sent to the landmark city of Mar del Plata with an important sum of money. He must give it to his boss’ grandson, Sergio Palma (Pablo Rago), to complete the purchase of some storefronts. Also staying at the hotel is Sergio’s beautiful sister, Paulina (Lali González), who exerts a special fascination on Alejandro. Paulina uses these feelings to convince him to gamble for her at the roulette table; she wants money for a trip around the world (a trip her grandfather opposes). But while Alejandro plays roulette for Paulina, Sergio uses his grandfather’s money for his own illegal enterprise; his plan is to make enough to free himself from the family business. Alejandro loses control of the situation, and to make matters worse, his boss shows up in Mar del Plata. Pascual Palma scolds Alejandro, but he’s even more disheartened by his grandchildren, who seem unwilling to grow up. Determined to teach them a lesson, he orders Alejandro to gamble with him at the casino so that his grandchildren can see how their inheritance vanishes. Twists of fate and luck do the rest, as winners and losers are decided.

    Inspired by Fiodor Dostoievski novel, “El jugador” (The Gambler)
