The film is centered around Colonia Dignidad, a religious compound that serves as a cult and torture prison for former Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet. Lena (Watson) infiltrates the camp in order to find her boyfriend (Brühl) who was kidnapped by the cult for campaigning for Salvador Allende. Colonia Dignidad is led by the sinister Paul Schäfer (Nyqvist) who practices crushingly oppressive and viciously misogynistic practices.
“Colonia” opens in theaters and on VOD on April 15. Watch the trailer above, courtesy of Yahoo! Movies.
