Perro Come Perro / Dog Eat Dog

Vengar la muerte de un tal William Medina y la prisa por recuperar unos dólares perdidos son el pretexto inicial que une a los protagonistas de este relato: Víctor Peñaranda (Marlon Moreno) y Eusebio Benítez (Óscar Borda), quienes tienen que someterse a las órdenes de ¨El Orejón¨(Blas Jaramillo), un poderoso empresario devoto de la brujería, deseoso de vengar la muerte de su ahijado y obsesionado por encontrar su dinero.

Con un ¨tufo¨ de comedia negra y muchos elementos de acción, PERRO COME PERRO es un thriller que narra la historia de dos hombres unidos por su destino fatal: ambos rompen las reglas del mundo del hampa y tienen que pagar por sus faltas.

Sin conocerse, Peñaranda y Benítez son contratados para un confuso operativo del que tienen pocos detalles. Comparten la habitación de un céntrico hotel, donde deben permanecer atentos y a la espera de instrucciones telefónicas. Cada uno obedece órdenes y trata de ocultar sus culpas: Peñaranda esconde los dólares que robó hace un par de días y Benítez carga con el peso de haber asesinado a William Medina.

¨El Orejón¨, rodeado de personajes como ¨Iris¨ (Paulina Rivas), su bruja de cabecera, y ¨Sierra¨ (Álvaro Rodríguez), su mordaz y más cercano colaborador, cierra el cerco de su venganza; atormenta a Benítez hasta llevarlo a la locura y acorrala a Peñaranda cuyo botín se convierte hora tras hora en un pesado lastre.

En PERRO COME PERRO la acción se sucede vertiginosamente. En un mundo donde La lealtad es palabra muerte, la tensión de cada personaje señala que no siempre el que ríe de último ríe mejor.

In a tone of black comedy and with many elements of action, DOG EAT DOG is a thriller that narrates the story of two men with the same and fatal destiny, Víctor Peñaranda and Eusebio Benítez. Their sentence is the logical ending for having broken the rules that define the world of the underworld. It is a code that is not written anywhere, but that they accepted, just like you accept that night comes after day.

In this word the boss is El Orejón. A powerful businessman who lives in the tallest building of the city, accompanied by an extravagant amount of telescopes, who suffers from agoraphobia and who is devoted to witchcraft, and who wants them to pay for their mistakes.

Peñaranda and Benítez have been hired for an operation of which they have few details. They meet each other sharing a hotel room downtown, where they must stay attentive and waiting for telephone instructions. Both have arrived there following orders and trying to hide their blames: Peñaranda keeps, for two days, a big amount of dollars that he stole during a shady and unlawful entry. Benítez carries the burden of having killed William Medina, El Orejón’s favorite godchild and, without complaining, he suffers what seems to be a curse.

El Orejón is the owner of the money that Peñaranda hides and he is in mourning for his godchild. Little by little he corners Peñaranda as he torments Benítez until he takes him to madness.

Peñaranda feels the beat of the dollars he has hid in the ceiling of the hotel room bathroom; he is suspicious of the messy and mysterious situation that surrounds him, of the weird behavior of his room mate; he wants to run away, but too late he finds out that the deceitful mission in which he is involved, has been planed by El Orejón.

Peñaranda’s booty is now a bound of fear. His plan to escape is permanently frustrated by situations that border on the absurd. The spectral siege apparently makes Benítez not to pay attention to the ambush. The circle closes, until they are forced to go to a last operation, where they know that the only and desperate option they find is to join their scarce strengths against El Orejón.

Every instant is another step towards a vertex with no return. Under the unusual logic of Dog Eat Dog, where loyalty is a dead word, life makes sure it teaches each one of the characters of this story that he who laughs last, not always laughs best.
