In this engrossing thriller, Magallanes works as a psychologically scarred taxi driver in the streets of Lima. But he has also has a side job chauffeuring a brutal retired colonel whom he once served in the army many years ago. One day, Celina steps into Magallanes’ cab, and he recognizes her as a former wartime captive the Colonel viciously abused. Haunted and conflicted by his failure to act to help her in the past, Magallanes vows redemption. He digs up an old photo that could be presented as evidence of the Colonel’s crimes and begins to concoct a plot to blackmail the old man’s son.



The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
