Gazing over the rooftops of her hometown, the city of Medellín, 22-year-old Paula relives recent events: Her politically engaged father gets shot by two motorcyclists as they drive home together. Paula recognises one of murderers, but the local police shows no interest in investigating the case. When a few months later, she coincidentally comes across the man, she makes a drastic decision. Caught between fear, fascination and compassion, she takes cautious steps ever closer to her father’s contract killer – a path that brings her from her middle-class family home into the hillside slums of the Colombian metropolis. Director Laura Mora’s captivating, social realist thriller harks back to her own traumatic experiences as a child and acts as a vent to deal with her long-standing wish for revenge and justice.
