Synopsis

Reus is the story of a neighborhood, two families, and the codes they’ve followed for years. Reus is a mythical immigrant neighborhood built in the late 19th century in Montevideo. It is the site of Uruguay’s first synagogue, and a district where big stores and poor slums exist side by side. 
 
The power struggle between Tano’s family and the Jewish storeowners is about to explode. A new drug, pasta base, has arrived on the old streets. The conventions that have ruled for generations are fading and the end of an era is near. With a realistic eye, Reus reveals the tensions and conflicts that are quickly changing the neighborhood.
