The Ghosts

Guatemala, Argentina· 2020· 76´ · Spanish


Koki is a young, attractive, and charismatic man who makes a living in Guatemala City as a thief by proxy. He befriends tourists who he suddenly mugs, and he seduces men in bars and clubs, leading them to a hotel room where they are robbed. The latter arrangement is in conjunction with Carlos, a middleaged, senior member of the hotel’s staff. Away from the dated atmosphere of his workplace, Carlos indulges in another form of rehearsed violence, moonlighting as a wrestler, briefly liberated under a thick shade of make-up. Soon the tables will turn for Koki when he is betrayed by Carlos.
