Synopsis:

Two small-time swindlers meet, seemingly by chance, in a Buenos Aires convenience store. They agree to team up for the day, with the more experienced Marcos (Darín) offering to teach the younger Juan (Pauls) the tricks of their trade. And then an opportunity to pull a major-league scam lands in their laps. An expert forger contacts Marcos about a set of rare stamps from Weimar Germany - the 'Nine Queens' of the title. A prospective buyer, Gandolfo (Abadal), is being extradited to Venezuela, and in his rush to complete a deal, he may not detect a set of forgeries. There's a snag, though - he's staying at the hotel where Valeria (Brédice) works, and she hasn't forgiven brother Marcos for the way he attempted to cheat her and her younger sibling out of the family inheritance...
