Story


Jorge is a tranquil, middle-class family man whose neighborhood has become overrun by a fringe class of street thugs. His comparatively fortunate existence makes him the target of their intimidation one night, and a hulking outlaw robs him of his insulin needle. Jorge's teenage son boldly tries to stand up for his father, which only serves to unleash the bully's terrorizing reign of threats upon the family. Jorge and his wife, Martha, seek protection from the legal system but are subjected to civic drones and bureaucratic procedure, so they remain vulnerable. As Jorge's family suffers from fear and humiliating anguish, the situation paints him as a deficient patriarch-until he's cornered into defending what's his.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..a quiet drama that cares as much about familial alienation as getting away with murder..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]
“..the pace subsequently sags, but it all ends with a dramatic pop as sharp as the first of only two gunshots in this menacing, morally agnostic film..”
by Chris Michael [The Guardian]
“..as implied by the title, the psychological weight and practical difficulty of taking a single life are the overriding concerns here..”
by Guy Lodge [Variety]
