Kai (Garcia Bernal), a mysterious and mystical figure, emerges from the Argentinean rainforest to rescue Vania (Braga), who has been kidnapped by mercenaries. Together they face off against the men who have ruthlessly murdered Vania’s father, a poor farmer, and taken over his land. Part love story, part western, Fendrik turns this latter genre on its head as so-called civilisation becomes a destructive force over both the rich jungle setting and the communities living within it.
Gael Garcia Bernal (Babel, No) joins forces with Alice Braga (I Am Legend, Elysium) in Argentinian director Pablo Fendrik’s tale of unfolding revenge.
