Inspired by real events which took place in Ticino in the early 2000s, Oro Verde tells the story of Mario, an unemployed engineer, a victim of the economic crisis. Together with his gang, they consider the heist of the century: stealing a huge quantity of cannabis which was confiscated by the police and stashed away in a military warehouse and replacing it with hay. They hoped the plan would turn their lives around.
