Synopsis

A disgraced Dominican cop fights to clear his name and avenge his father's death in this gritty revenge thriller from director Joshua Crook (Salvage, Rockaway). Luisito's father was an honest butcher who valued hard work. He was a positive role model for a kid from the slums, and Luisito's life was forever changed when notorious drug dealer Rafa (Paul Calderon) shot him down in cold blood. Flash-forward two decades, and Luisito is doing his part to keep the Dominican Republic safe from the criminal element. He's been carefully molded into the perfect crime fighter thanks to the charismatic General Colon (Juan Fernández), who exploited Luisito's childhood trauma before inducting him into the secret police. As a young boy, Luisito fell deeply in love with Jenny. But when Jenny's family moved to New York shortly after Luisito's father was killed, they lost touch. Now, Jenny (Denise Quiñones) is back in the Dominican Republic, and her feelings for Luisito are stronger than ever. If only Luisito could find a way to tell her about his work, perhaps they could find a way to make love work. Unfortunately for Luisito and Jenny, an investigation into General Colon's recent activities reveals an epic betrayal, and sets the stage for a tragic confrontation. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
