It's Friday night in Asunción, Paraguay, and the temperature is sweltering. Víctor, a 17-year-old wheelbarrow delivery boy, dreams of fame and owning a fancy TV set from the infamous Mercado 4. He's offered a chance to deliver seven boxes with unknown contents in exchange for a quick one hundred US dollars. But what sounds like an easy job soon becomes complicated. Something in the boxes is highly coveted and V?ctor and his pursuers quickly find themselves caught up in a crime they know nothing about.
Reminiscent of Slumdog Millionare, 7 Boxes was declared a film of cultural interest by the National Secretary of Culture of Paraguay. (from Pragda Spanish Club site).
