Storyline

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. Written by Sundance Film Festival

Not a how to guide
28 October 2014 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

This is a raw depiction of an event that actually happened. And after you stopped rolling your eyes (I do that a lot too, when I read that "based on..." thing), let me tell you that this is as down and dirty and especially real as they get. There is nothing glamorized here. Be it the villains, the police or our main character (the latter probably one of the most passive "heroes" you'll ever encounter).

But that's what makes the movie special. It might not be your kind of special, especially if you're expecting this to be an action movie (it's anything but). The loneliness and the way the justice system works is more than irritating. You have to make up your own mind and get out of that anything you want to see. Also there couldn't be any better ending to this movie
