Pedro is caught up in a divorce that he cannot solve, and trapped in a whirlpool of debts in the midst of the Argentine economic crisis. The day before his six-year-old daughter’s birthday, he receives an ultimatum to return the money he owes to a lender. He is now cornered by his beliefs and by the system. Time is running out. Transforming mentalities about gender equality is still a pending task in Argentine society. 36 horas explores issues that are intrinsic to people’s behaviour in order to expose them and bring about the necessary changes.
