José Gutierrez, the son of a banker in Colombia, has been kidnapped. In 90 minutes, the ransom is due or he will be killed. In real time, and in flashbacks about each main character, we see José in New York with his girlfriend and back home with Luiza an old flame; his parents seek the help of an ex-FBI agent, and José's father's makes a bargain with the devil for the ransom money; the kidnappers also face problems. The suitcase of cash is racing to the drop, but traffic delays the driver. Armed operatives are en route to where they think José is captive. Cash, drugs, guns, bargains, soldiers of fortune, dispossessed farmers, family, and death: Colombia.
Sometimes even ransom isn't enough.
