Buenos Aires is in a tur­moil. Antoine, a French jour­nal­ist who has just come here to write a paper on tourism, is soon con­fronted to the harsh real­ity of the city. Three decades after the start of a dic­ta­to­r­ial rule, five years after a dev­as­tat­ing eco­nomic cri­sis, the peo­ple of this newly demo­c­ra­tic cap­i­tal city keep march­ing for more work, more food, and less cor­rup­tion from the ones who ruined their hopes. Through Antoine’s gen­uine expe­ri­ence and per­sonal itin­er­ary, while he gets to know the peo­ple and starts to be involved in the events, the city grad­u­ally uncovers.

From Mar­cos Agui­nis the for­mer min­is­ter to Pablo the street urchin, from Patri­cia the wait­ress to the “crazy” Madres of the Plaza de Mayo – mis­cel­la­neous chance encoun­ters give Antoine an occa­sion to assess the polit­i­cal, social and human sit­u­a­tion of the city. And what about the moth­ers mourn­ing all the kids who died in a club in fire on Decem­ber 30th 2004? They demand jus­tice and turn this scan­dal into a new sym­bol of the fight for the people’s rights. 596’ It is time for change in Buenos Aires.
