Martín (Javier De Pietro) has something stuck in his eye and gets excused from a swimming class for a routine check up in the company of his professor (Carlos Echevarría). Nothing about this small incident is casual, since the young student has apparently set up a plan he carries out with an unconscious determination. His sexual energy seems to be focused on weaving a thread of lies to reach his objective. But, what does Martín want? How far is he willing to go? After Plan B, Marco Berger continues his exploration of genres and territories rarely seen in recent Argentine cinema. Now, he does it in the form of a thriller, a context in which the film seems to find an ideal environment to develop another love story of manipulation and desire. The kind where the film’s gripping pace is set by details behind every gesture and the intrigue behind the words and decisions.
