It is a hot Friday in the Paraguayan capital Asunción. In a popular and lively marketplace, 17-year-old Víctor dreams about becoming an action hero on TV. Working in the market is brutal and competitive and when he unexpectedly gets an opportunity to earn a quick US$100, he takes it. The only thing that he is expected to do is to deliver seven boxes with unknown contents. He is given instructions towards an unknown destination along the way through a borrowed cell phone. Of course, the task proves to be more complicated than expected.

The market invites us to meet several peculiar characters that show much interest in the boxes. But no matter how many hits and falls the boxes take, they won’t reveal their contents. Without realizing, Víctor and his followers are involved in a crime about which they know absolutely nothing. »7 Boxes« is director-duo Maneglia and Schémbori’s first feature film, a film of chaos and surprises.
