“7 Boxes” (2012) is a Paraguayan thriller directed by Juan Carlos Maneglia and Tana Schémbori. It takes place in Asunción circa 2005, where a daydreaming 17-year-old pushcart porter named Victor (Celso Franco) is contracted to deliver seven boxes of valuable cargo in exchange for half of a torn $100 bill and the promise of the other half when the job is done. With a borrowed cell phone and the help of his friend Liz (Lali Gonzalez), Victor struggles to accomplish the mission which he hopes will put him on the path towards fame and fortune, though he quickly realizes the danger of his situation as he encounters thieves, gangsters and police along the way.
