El Angel follows the story of Carlos Robledo Puch, the longest-serving prisoner in the history of Argentina. As a child, he had always coveted what wasn’t his own, but it wasn’t until his early adolescence that he found his true calling: becoming a thief. Dubbed the “Angel of Death” by the press and showered with attention because of his angelic appearance and movie-star swagger, he became a celebrity overnight. In total, he is believed to have committed over forty thefts and eleven homicides.
