“The Fast and the Furious’ with wheelbarrows, Paraguayan action-thriller-romance hybrid ’7 Boxes’ is a rollicking good time at the movies that offers breathtaking action and suspense, humor and appealing characters all in one visually flashy package.” – Indiewire
It’s Friday night in Asunción, Paraguay and the temperature is sweltering. Víctor, a 17-year-old wheelbarrow delivery boy, dreams of becoming famous and covets a fancy cellular phone in the infamous Mercado 4. He’s offered a chance to deliver seven boxes with unknown contents in exchange for a quick US$100. But what sounds like an easy job soon gets complicated. Something in the boxes is highly coveted and Víctor and his pursuers quickly find themselves caught up in a crime they know nothing about.
Victor, un joven de 17 años, recibe una propuesta rara de llevar 7 cajas a un sitio en el Mercado 4- y le pagaran $100 dolares. ¿Que llevan las cajas? El no saber lo mete en situaciones complicadas.
