Movie Info

Her boyfriend slain while sleeping as Alberto Fujimori's "civil dictatorship" falters on its last legs, a privileged schoolteacher and a world-weary tabloid journalist attempt to avenge the politically motivated murder in director Francisco José Lombardi's searing political thriller. Guido Pazos (Dario Abad) was an honest judge, so when Gabriela (Melania Urbina) learns that reporter Angelina (Magdyel Ugaz) has buckled to demands that she spin the death as the result of a gay romance gone wrong the grieving girlfriend confronts the cynical writer. Now, as Gabriela and Angelina delve ever deeper into the mystery, Gabriela hatches a detailed plan to murder shadowy criminal Montesinos - the man she holds directly responsible for Guido's death. After acquiring some particularly sensitive false documents and entering into a torrid romance with the one person who could grant her a private audience with the powerful Montesinos, the vengeful Gabriela begins working at a hotel catering exclusively to military and government officials while biding her time and waiting to make the big kill. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
