Esteban Espinoza is an introverted taxidermist who secretly dreams of executing the perfect robbery. On his first ever hunting trip, in the calm of the Patagonian forest, his dreams are unexpectedly made reality with one squeeze of the trigger. Espinoza accidentally kills a man who turns out to be a real criminal and becomes heir to his scheme: the heist of an armored van carrying casino profits. Caught up in a world of complex new rules and frightening violence, Espinoza's inexperience puts him in real danger. However, he has another, more dangerous liability: he is an epileptic. Before each seizure he is visited by "the aura", a paradoxical moment of confusion and enlightenment where the past and future seem to blend. These attacks appear without notice, when he least expects them, and just when he needs all his wits about him
Carancho by Pablo Trapero( Visual )

20 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in Spanish and French and held by 551 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

22 deaths a day, 683 a month, over 8,000 a year, 100,000 over the last decade. In Argentina, traffic accidents are decimating those 35 and under. Festering beneath Argentina's crime-plagued, class-divided society is the quasi-lawless realm of motor vehicle accidents and their aftermath. Sosa is an ambulance-chasing lawyer. He's lost his license, so now he works the late-night streets of Buenos Aires, signing up injured clients for a predatory firm that will pay them perhaps a quarter, or a fifth, of what the insurance companies pay. Luján is an overworked young doctor who takes ambulance shifts for extra money. Her level of sleeplessness and chemical intake renders her less than desirable for performing emergency life-and-death surgery, but to Sosa Luján seems to be a ministering angel who can redeem his sleazoid existence. While Luján and Sosa can fall in love, the more vital question is can they escape the grim logic of their situation, evade responsibility for their own actions, and outrun a machine determined to destroy them?
