Description

Set between Morocco, southern Spain, and the British territory of Gibraltar, Daniel Monzón’s high octane action film pits two driven cops against two young teenage drug traffickers. El Niño is one of the traffickers, willing to traverse the Strait of Gibraltar at a fearless speed while dreaming of a better life. Evoking Michael Mann and Alfred Hitchcock, Monzón constructs raw and unforgettable action sequences but never forgets the emotions and individuals at stake.
