Victor is 17 and dreams of being famous and seeing his own face all over the TV sets of Mercado 4, in Asunción, Paraguay. The solution seems at hand when he is offered $100 to carry seven boxes, the contents of which he has no knowledge. Crossing the nine blocks that make up the Market seems like an easy enough mission, but things get complicated along the way. Warmly received outside the country, 7 boxes became the biggest hit in the history of Paraguayan cinema. Toronto Film Festival 2012.
