Year: 2012
Run Time: 105 minutes

Victor is a teenage delivery boy in Paraguay who dreams of being a famous movie star. Every day he passes by the electronics store in the market, staring at the television screens. When he discovers that cellphones can record video, he tries to get more work so he can buy one. Soon he stumbles onto an opportunity to make $100 and quickly accepts. His mission is to deliver seven crates by wheelbarrow to a secret location. He is given a borrowed cellphone on which he will receive more instructions. What seems like a simple task turns out to be a tangled mess. Thieves, competitors, and police all begin following Victor in a chase that quickly turns dangerous. Meanwhile, it becomes clear that the people who hired him are completely shady. This all leads to one very important question: what exactly is in the crates? 7 BOXES is an intense, high-paced action film that will leave you on the edge of your seat.
