Too much time and too little cash are an explosive combination for a group of street kids in Mexico City. Four friends, Negus, Chale, Sapo and Chata have little to lose when they decide - out of boredom - to rob a local movie theatre. Each of them dreams of how their lives will be changed for the better with all the cash they will each receive. But their lives are not so grand after the robbery, and they must now face the prospect of losing everything... even their friendships. The Cinema Hold Up is a spectacular debut feature from director Iria Gomez Concheiro that places her in the top tier of exciting new filmmakers.
