Seven years after the Argentine economic crisis of 2001, Buenos Aires is still reeling from the effects. Out of the turmoil emerges a group known simply as the cartoneros, those who collect cardboard for a living. They reveal, through their own footage, their intricate relationship with the city of Buenos Aires. The constant movement of the city blurs as individuals relate their stories. In this job without rules, drugs, violence and sex permeate daily life. As cartoneros, Lidia, Ramon, and their children nightly traverse socioeconomic boundaries, confronting the questions of who is responsible for keeping the often-raucous cartonero youth in line and, ultimately, who determines the fate of this marginalized group.
