Well into their 30s, Juan and Benjamin can’t seem to finish veterinary school or leave their parents’ homes in Satélite, Mexico City’s version of an American suburb. On a fateful Christmas eve, however, they decide it’s finally time to distinguish themselves by pulling off the most infamous heist of cultural artifacts in all of Mexican history—looting the country’s iconic National Anthropology Museum.
