EVERYBODY HAS A PLAN tells the story of Agustin (Mortensen), a man desperate to abandon what he gradually has come to feel is an unfulfilling existence after years of living in Buenos Aires. Following the death of his identical twin brother Pedro, Agustin sets out to begin his life anew by assuming Pedro's identity and returning to the mysterious Tigre Delta region where the brothers had spent their childhood. Soon after his homecoming, however, Agustin finds himself unwittingly embroiled in the deadly criminal underworld that his brother had been part of. The film is set against the peculiar landscape of the Tigre Delta, a maze of islands and rivers that once served as a recreational playground for the Buenos Aires elite, where one can still find French- and English-style mansions flanking the Delta's waterways as reminders of its opulent past. But there are darker, more secluded corners deep within the wetlands where unwritten rules of conduct and codes of silence are enforced by those locals living outside the law. It is in these dangerous backwaters, which have always provided refuge for Argentina's outcasts and criminals, that Agustin faces a desperate fight for survival as he tries to reinvent himself and leave the past behind.
