Pickpockets

Pickpockets

Available on Netflix
Fresh and Doggy are part of a group of teen PICKPOCKETS on the streets of Bogotá. Their actions attract the attention of Chucho (Carlos Bardem), an expert pickpocket from Spain who cannot leave Colombia until he pays his debts to a corrupt police officer. Chucho instructs Fresh and Doggy in the best ways to pickpocket without having to resort to violence. Fresh and Doggy recruit their new friend Juana to join them as they go on a pickpocketing spree, stealing wallets, change purses, and smartphones. Chucho takes a cut of their "earnings" as payment for his training and also because he works "undercover" as a security guard, with access to all the security cameras posted on the streets he watches. As they start to get better and steal more valuables, Fresh, Doggy, and Juana attract the attention of their former pickpocket gang from the old neighborhood they used to work. Despite being told by everyone to stay out of that old neighborhood, Fresh, Doggy, and Juana go rogue and pickpocket wealthy attendees of the opera. This leads to calamitous consequences for all concerned, and after Doggy goes too far and is taken prisoner and Chucho disavows them for going it alone in a neighborhood outside of his jurisdiction, Fresh and Juana must use all of their newfound skills to pull off their most difficult heist yet, rescue Doggy, and make things right with Chucho.
