Director: Rodrigo Plá • Mexico
Fed up with trying to secure health care for her husband’s severe medical ailments, Sonia takes matters into her own hands. Tracking down his doctor, she kidnaps him at gunpoint, setting the stage for a nail-biter that evokes the mind-numbing bureaucracy of Brazil and the citizen-on-the-edge stakes of Falling Down. Rodrigo Plá’s latest drama is a timely and tightly paced sociopolitical thriller.
