Vicente is a typical bon-vivant playboy. One Sunday night, he is drinking and driving around with other young men he barely knows. The drive is interrupted when something collides with the car. The trauma gains new proportions the following morning when they find out that a father of three was the victim of a hit-and-run. In its most recent work, Alejandro Fernández Almendras (To Kill a Man) revisits a true event that caused a stir in Chilean media with a story about the structures of power and corrupted justice system of his home country. Berlin and Sundance Film Festivals, 2016.
