Detective Galban Keanu Reeves, finds his partner and close friend, Detective Cullen, murdered in an underground subway. On the hunt for the killer/s, Galban begins to suspect his partner may have been heavily involved in drug dealing and police corruption. As Galban investigates, people who knew Cullen, are conveniently found dead. The closer Galban gets to the truth, both Cullen's wife, Janine Mira Sorvino, and his Lieutenant Christopher McDonald, try to persuade him to back off, fearing his findings may discredit Cullen and expose corruption within the Police Department. Galban's only remaining lead is Isabel, a young, devout, Latina girl, who resides with her in-laws. Galban fears her life could be in jeopardy should he get too close to her. However, Isabel has recently experienced something not from this world, something mystical that she believes is truly a miracle. Not unlike Galban, Isabel is dealing with her own demons from the past; a past that just may lead them to the truth...Written by
The director's cut was edited by Roman Polanski's longtime editor, Hervé de Luze, and is a surreal story that focuses on a young Latina who was abused as a child. This version is seventy percent in Spanish. See more »

The writer/director intended the movie to be a dual language, Spanish/English social drama about violence towards women and child abuse. The producers instead turned the movie into Keanu Reeves cop thriller. An alternate version that follows the director's vision was edited by Roman Polanski's longtime editor, Hervé de Luze See more »

I have just recovered the password for my IMDb account (which I didn't use to login since some time) to write how bad this movie is and that it was a total waste of time!!
I wish I read the previous reviews before watching this nonsense movie but I've made the mistake of reading only the plot which was quite interesting (but very untrue).
The story is stupid, the acting is bad and the video shots are poor. A lot of things happen with no reason and no connection to the rest of the movie, the story is half in English and half in Spanish but mixed in such a way that it becomes annoying from the beginning of the movie.
Time is precious, don't waste it on this movie!
