How far would you go to protect your family?
Jorge, a hardworking family man barely making ends meet, is mugged one day by neighbourhood delinquent Kalule. Jorge's son confronts the attacker, only to get himself shot. Kalule is sentenced to a short term in prison, on emerging from which the enraged sociopath terrorises Jorge's family. They look to the police for help but are turned away, so Jorge decides to take justice into his own hands. A tense, thoughtful and restrained study of an all-too-believable tragic predicament. [12A]
