A heist movie in the classic Hollywood
tradition, LADRON QUE ROBA A LADRON follows two veteran
thieves, Emilio and Alejandro, who reunite to rob the
biggest thief they know – Moctesuma Valdez, a TV infomercial
guru who’s made millions selling worthless health products
to poor Latino immigrants. Valdez’s empire is next to
impossible to infiltrate. But Emilio and Alejandro know if
they go undercover as day laborers – chauffeurs, gardeners,
maids, and repairmen – they can rob Valdez blind right under
his nose. It’s a perfect plan…except that no one on their
team wants the job.
Refusing to give up, Emilio and Alejandro come up with a
solution so insane it might just work – use real day
laborers. Within days, they form a team of criminal amateurs
with just the right skills. There’s Julio, a TV repair shop
employee who’s also an electronics expert, Rafa and Rafaela,
a valet and his mechanic daughter in charge of
transportation, Miguelito, a Cuban refugee actor and master
of disguises, and the metro-sexual ditch digger, Anival, who
plays the token heavy.
None of them has ever committed a crime -- much less a con –
in their lives, but this motley crew of underdogs – so often
taken for granted – is ready to face impossible odds and
“receive 100 years of forgiveness.” Full of humor and heart,
LADRON QUE ROBA A LADRON proves that being underestimated is
sometimes your best advantage.
