We gave it a B-

Penned by The Motorcycle Diaries‘ Jose Rivera, this topical drama chronicles the struggles of a teenage boy (Cesar Ramos) who teams up with a Texan cop (Kevin Kline) to rescue his 13-year-old sister (Paulina Gaitan) after she is abducted by human traffickers in Mexico City.With its frank depiction of the horrors of the sex trade, director Marco Kreuzpaintner hopes audiences will react to the film on more than just a cerebral level. ”It’s not only about being shocked,” he says. ”I want people to get angry.”
