During the 70s, the regional economy attracted numerous opportunists to Uruguay. The institutions were bankrupt; there was a military government; the insurgents were behind bars and, for the sectors of poor reputation in the Brazilian and Argentine economies, Uruguay’s financial market seemed like the perfect place to make money disappear. That’s how Humberto Brause sets out on a meteoric career buying and selling foreign currency, sponsored by his father-in-law, a veteran in the business of capital flight. Blinded by his excessive ambition, Humberto steamrollers everyone that gets in his way. Finally running the family business, he accepts a suspicious job: to launder more money than he’s ever seen in his life.


Federico Veiroj (Montevideo, 1976) premiered at the Cannes Quinzaine des Réalisateurs Acné (2008), his first feature film, winner, among other accolades, of the Films in Progress TVE Award at San Sebastian in 2007. The film also competed in Horizontes Latinos at San Sebastian in 2008. La vida útil (A Useful Life, 2010) won the Films in Progress Industry Award at San Sebastian in 2009 and screened the following year in New Directors. Also in 2009, Veiroj was a member of the Horizontes Latinos jury. El apóstata (The Apostate, 2015) competed in San Sebastian, where it received the FIPRESCI prize and a Special Jury Mention. In 2018 he presented his fourth feature film, Belmonte, in Zabaltegi - Tabakalera. He was a member of the Zabaltegi - Tabakalera Award Jury in 2016.
