The plot tells the story of Leo (Lanzani), a con artist who finds himself having to change his identity to escape the brutal clutches of Duges (Depardieu), López (Segura) and Harken (Silva), who are out for his blood. Cueva commented: “A film like this is a unique proposition in Spain and Argentina. It’s an action comedy that blends some nail-biting scenes with generous doses of humour and romance. We’re confident that the risk will pay off and audiences will be awed by the result; it also brings together an amazing group of actors.”

You Only Live Once is being produced by Bowfinger International Pictures and MyS Producción in association with Quexito Films, A Contracorriente Films, Telefe, Cindy Teperman, Benteveo Producciones Audiovisuales, DK Group and DirecTv. ICAA, RTVE and Movistar+ are also involved in the project. The film will be distributed throughout Latin America by Buena Vista and in Spain by A Contracorriente Films, and is scheduled for worldwide release in July 2017.
