The story takes place in the mid-naughties, a time when Buenos Aires was dealing with the fall out of a political and economic crisis that had engulfed the entire country. Most Argentinians remained in a state of post-traumatic shock, others protested in vain. The only to profit from the chaos were the minions of the underworld. The guide to this demi-monde, however, is a man fighting to save not only his own morality but also his v.i.p. credentials.
Buenos Aliens is the story of a friendship forged in the unlikeliest of crucibles. It is the story of acts that cannot be explained in terms of their intentions. It is the story of drugs being consumed and drugs being sold. Above all, it is the story of indecision and the unexpected relationship between two Englishmen, an American and an Argentinian.
