In Argentina, more than eight thousand people die every year in road accidents at a daily average of twenty-two. Only the last decade has seen one hundred thousand deaths. Behind every tragedy, there is an industry. Sosa is a lawyer specialised in road accidents and close to recovering his licence. He moves through emergency rooms of public hospitals and funeral houses in the suburbs of Buenos Aires in search of potential customers. Luján, is a young doctor from the province, trying to make a living out of many jobs: ambulances, hospital ER, emergency services. This love story begins the night Luján and Sosa meet on the street.
