Heli lives in a tiny house on the Mexican plain. His life involves taking care of his young wife and sister and trying to do right by working an honest job at a factory. His younger sister is only 12 years old and has an older boyfriend who has just joined the army. A stupid decision by the young cadet sends Heli’s whole family cascading down a hellish path of violence and destruction. Once events are set in motion there is no escaping the carnage that results from a society ruled by men with guns. [Synopsis courtesy of AFI FEST]
