Ricardo Darín (star of the Oscar-winning The Secret in Their Eyes) and Martina Gusmán (Lion's Den) give unforgettable performances in the gripping and highly acclaimed thriller CARANCHO (The Vulture), an exhilarating journey into the darker side of Buenos Aires life from leading Argentinean director Pablo Trapero (Rolling Family, Born and Bred).


With traffic accidents in Argentina on the rise, bodies become currency and a flourishing black market strives to get rich from the personal tragedies that litter the streets. Sosa (Darín) is an ambulance-chasing personal injury lawyer with questionable ethics. Lujan (Gusman) is a young, idealistic country doctor new to the city. As their lives become intertwined, they form an unlikely romance that becomes threatened by Sosa’s turbulent past. 


CARANCHO is a hard-hitting, edge-of-your seat experience that juggles the emotional turmoil of its riveting central characters with a visceral physicality that grabs your attention from the start and never lets go.
