Zico and his hacker sister Angie plan a major robbery on the day of Colombia's World Cup qualifying match with Uruguay. It's to be their final heist, providing enough money to keep them set for life. Along for the ride is their long-time assistant El Guajaro and a newbie named Rincon who is a replacement for their incarcerated ex-partner. Their plan seems flawless. As pros, they know how to orchestrate an easy set-up that leaves no casualties or traces. When Angie falls for Rincon and brings him inside their circle, even the overprotective Zico begins to bond with him. But Rincon’s charm can sometimes be overshadowed by his suspiciously distant personality. Is there something he's not telling them? Arranged in a series of flashbacks and flash-forwards, 180 SECONDS reveals its story in slow bursts, always leaving you begging for more. This high-paced thriller is guided by a sexy, upbeat Colombian hip-hop soundtrack that mirrors the film's sanguine vibe. But is all the fun blinding the gang from seeing the whole picture? (In Spanish with subtitles) – E.F.
