Director Statement

Currently, we live in a Mexico where organized crime is in control. Where the cartels can do any kind of atrocity without consequence. This film tells a story that is constantly repeated in this country. Cartels massacring innocent people and authorities corrupted by these organizations, doing nothing for money.
In a country that seems to have no remedy, the film narrates this to the extreme, a teenage
couple and a child survive the loss of their parents and their heritage at the hands of these
men. With courage (a consequence of their innocence) and the desire for things to improve,
they decide to take justice into their own hands and do the unthinkable. End this organizations.
An example for those who call themselves “Authorities"
