While listening to the 2006 World Cup broadcast in his car, L. Hinojosa is diverted down a side street where a group of men claiming to be police officers abduct him, claiming he is a trafficker.
About The Film:
Corruption, kidnapping, and vigilante justice fuel this explosive debut by Mexican filmmaker Everardo Gout. Set in Mexico City during three consecutive World Cup tournaments, three lives impacted by abduction, intersect. Lupe, an idealistic cop, is tasked to investigate a crime ring and finds that justice has no value when a human life has a price. When Susana’s businessman-husband Arturo is taken, she must go outside the law to fight for his release. And Iguana is conflicted as he dreams of becoming a boxer even as he is drawn into a lifestyle that finds him guarding kidnap Victim X and facing down a criminal mastermind.
The multi-Ariel Award®-winning film features music by Atticus Ross, Nick Cave, Warren Ellis, and Shigeru Umebayashe and features Scarlett Johansson on vocals in a remix of George Gershwin’s iconic song, ‘Summertime.’
