The Moneychanger

Así habló el cambista

Montevideo, 1975, a land of milk and honey for crooks and scoundrels. A military junta has taken over power and has transformed Uruguay into the biggest money laundry in South America. We encounter oddball Humberto, who furiously throws himself into the shadowy business of buying and selling currency. Soon enough, he is consumed by his oversized ambition, trampling over everyone and everything in his path. Humberto is now faced with an unprecedented challenge: laundering the largest sum of money he has ever seen. A snarky black comedy, which mines a gloomy period in South American history.
