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, Latino 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 »

I am at a loss to find an adjective to truly describe this movie. So,I'll just go with awful, really awful.
Awful patch work structure. Awful, wooden acting. Awful Direction.
Given all of the awful mentioned above, skillful editing could have saved it, however the clumsy, almost random links left the converging plot lines disjointed and just, yes, awful.
The finance and production companies, all 16 of them, should have simply made a donation to charity rather than pour money into this awful mess. Over all, this awful movie left me feeling older and in need of a shower.
