Story


Every sixty minutes a person is abducted in Latin America. of the victims do not survive. "Secuestro Express" is the frightening story of one young couple's ordeal as they careen through the underbelly of Caracas, Venezuela in the hands of three thugs who've made them their latest payday.

Carla (Maestro) and Martin (Leroux) are a young upper-class couple fresh off of a night of dancing and partying when they cross paths with Trece (Molina), Budu (Perez) and Niga (Madera), three men who make their living by kidnapping unwitting young adults to extort quick money from their wealthy parents.

Carla and Martin become their next victims and are sent on a terrifying overnight journey through Caracas as they wait for Carla's father Sergio (Blades) to hand over twenty thousand dollas - a small amount for a rich Caraqueno, but the equivalent of almost 5 years of the Venezuelan minimum wage.
