Perennially unsuccessful conmen Salvador (Manuel Garcia-Rulfo) and Dario (Rodrigo Cachero) finally conned the wrong man. Trying to get a lucrative contract with a team desperate for a championship for an extremely talented but very injured soccer player named Gasparotto (Juan M. Jauregui), the duo face a series of innocuous events. These events lead them back to Martin (Daniel Martinez), a mobster Salvador once tried to swindle. In the middle of a life-or-death situation, Salvador tries to make sense of seemingly minor moments, causing him to question if he should change his less than morally upright ways—even if it means costing him his own life. Should he believe in something higher than himself? In director Fernando Kalife’s poignant drama, 180° takes us on a wondrous journey and raises the questions, can someone change course in life, and how far can one go down a path before it is too late?
