Víctor receives an unusual proposal, to carry 7 boxes of unknown content through the Market Number 4 but things get complicated along the way.

Víctor, 17-year-old wheelbarrow operator receives an unusual proposal: to transport seven boxes of unknown content through the Municipal Market, for a fee of $100. Lured by what is, for him, an enormous amount of money, Víctor accepts the proposition and begins the eight-block journey through the market. The seemingly simple task quickly becomes complicated and dangerous, as Víctor finds himself in a high-speed wheelbarrow chase in the market’s secret and gloomy corridors. The film reaches a thrilling climax as Víctor and his pursuers find themselves in the middle of a much more serious crime scheme than they could have ever imagined.

Víctor, que nunca ha visto esta cantidad de dinero, no tiene idea de lo que realmente es. Pero también sabe muy bien que su necesidad es mayor que su curiosidad. Con un teléfono celular prestado, el contratista utiliza para decirle el camino, Víctor se embarca en el viaje. Cruzando los ocho cuadras del mercado parecía fácil, pero las cosas se complican en el camino.
