Buenos Aires in the early 1980s. To outsiders, the Puccios appear to be a typical middle-class family. In reality, however, patriarch Arquímedes Puccio runs his business with a grip of iron. The business itself is bleak and gruesome: kidnapping, ransom blackmail, murder. He gets unconditional support from his son Alejandro who seeks out suitable victims. As the star of Argentina's rugby team, Alejandro is above all suspicion and thus the ideal tool. When Alejandro begins to have doubts about the family business, however, the facade begins to crumble. The Clan is a sinister thriller based on one of Argentina's best-known criminal families.
