New York Premiere!
Juan Benitez is a tough bodybuilder with a slightly menacing presence, but gentle and quiet in his interactions with people. He is hardworking, a textile factory operator during the day and a club bouncer at night, and dreams of eventually opening his own gym. But with a family to support, this prospect seems out of reach. Midway into the story, his steady routine is overturned after he witnesses a crime, and the film takes on a different tone, moving from subdued drama to a taut and suspenseful thriller as Benitez ponders what action to take. A cameraman and assistant director on more than 70 films since he graduated from film school 16 years ago, this is Trivino’s directorial debut.
