Written and directed by Argentinian auteur filmmaker Pablo Trapero (“Carancho,” “White Elephant”), THE CLAN tells the true story of a middle-class family pulled into a world of kidnapping, ransom and murder by the family’s patriarch.
On the surface the Puccios live like most families. Arquímedes (Guillermo Francella) presides over a modest household where his wife, sons, and daughters gather over evening home cooked meals to discuss their days. Eldest son Alejandro (Peter Lanzani) is a star rugby player who is manipulated into helping his father carry out the meticulously planned abductions. But when kidnapping turns to murder, Alejandro must finally face the truth that his father, his hero, is a cold-blooded killer.
