Film by Christian de la Cortina (Drama) Actor, Director, Writer, Producer, Editor The plot on the page is incorrect. It is more like Siamois tells in his review on IMDB: The rather convoluted plot follows Santiago, a car thief and supposed electronic genius who works undercover for the police and is attempting to shut down an auto theft ring. Various crime organizations are involved, each plotting against each others. To complicate matters, several law enforcement branches are also competing against each others. Written by ber_courrier
