Carlitos is a seventeen-year-old youth with movie star swagger, blond curls and a baby face. As a young boy, he coveted other people's things, but it wasn't until his early adolescence that his true calling manifested itself: to be a thief. When he meets Ramon at his new school, Carlitos is immediately drawn to him and starts showing off to get his attention. Together they will embark on a journey of discoveries, love and crime. Killing is just a random offshoot of the violence, which continues to escalate until Carlitos is finally apprehended. Because of his angelic appearance, the press dubs Carlitos "The Angel of Death". Showered with attention because of his beauty, he becomes an overnight celebrity. Altogether, he is believed to have committed over forty thefts and eleven homicides. Today, after more than forty-five years in jail, Carlos Robledo Puch is the longest- serving prisoner in the history of Argentina.

BIOGRAPHY

Luis Ortega competed in Made in Spanish at the San Sebastian Festival with his first film, Caja negra (Black Box, 2002). The second, Monobloc, was selected for Films in Progress in Toulouse 2005 and competed that same year in Horizontes Latinos. In 2015 he wrote and directed the television series Historia de un clan, on which he left a hallmark of highly-charged lyricism and eroticism. In 2016 he directed Lulú and returned to television with the series El marginal. El ángel (The Angel) was presented in the Un Certain Regard section at the last Cannes Festival.
