Alejandro Fernández Almendras (Sundance Grand Jury Prize winner To Kill A Man, SFF14) returns with this second part in his projected trilogy about justice. This installment focusses on “justice” for the rich, based on a controversial true case in Chile.
Laid-back twenty-something Vicente (Agustín Silva), is spending the end of his summer sleeping, partying and generally lazing about. With bronzed skin, sensual doe eyes and close-cut beard, it’s easy for him to catch the eye of some girls on the beach and one day they invite him to some impromptu house parties nearby. But a night drinking with friends becomes something much more twisted, as he wakes the next morning to find he is charged with the manslaughter of a relative of a powerful politician. Here, Vicente’s nightmare begins as he struggles to remember what happened that night. He retraces his steps and confusedly grapples with his impossible position and the injustice of a system in which he wields no power and innocence bears no relevance.
