Directed by Laura Mora Ortega

Colombia, Argentina 2017 100 mins. In Spanish

Paula, a college activist in Medellín, reveres her father, a professor who encourages his students to question their society. When her father is gunned down, she catches a fleeting glimpse of the mysterious killer, Jesús. When the police shrug at finding him, Paula starts her own search. Insinuating herself into his life with revenge in mind, she discovers that he is more complicated than she might have imagined and that they share victimization in a culture of violence and corruption. Mora’s suspenseful film captures both the beauty and pain of urban life in Colombia while making a moving case for how empathy can serve as its own form of catharsis. (100 mins.) In Spanish with English subtitles.
