It's Friday night in Asunción, Paraguay and the temperature is sweltering. Victor, a 17-year-old wheelbarrow delivery boy, receives an unusual proposal: to deliver seven boxes with unknown contents in exchange for a quick $100. What sounds like an easy job, however, soon gets complicated. There’s something in the boxes that’s highly coveted and Víctor and his pursuers quickly find themselves caught up in a crime they know nothing about.

Tickets: $12.50 - $16. Member Discounts Available.
