A twisty, breathless triple-kidnapping thriller.

Furiously paced, violent, and shot in a vivid, hallucinogenic style, this thriller weaves together three kidnappings that occur in Mexico City during successive World Cup seasons in 2002, 2006, and 2010. The multilayered story is told from the points of view of several participants: a tough cop with principles, a hostage, a teenage kidnapper, and the wife of a hostage. With a pumping score by Nick Cave, Warren Ellis, Atticus Ross, Shigeru Umebayashi and Massive Attack.
