In a peaceful stretch of forest outside the Ecuadorian city of Guayaquil, a deer steps into a hunter’s crosshairs, a trigger is pulled and a young tourist nearby falls to his death... igniting a powder keg of greed, power and violence in this gripping new thriller from co-writer and director Sebastian Cordero (Europa Report, Cronicas). When the alleged shooter is revealed to be the wealthy landowner, Emilio Baquerizo (Daniel Adum Gilbert), the trial exposes his ambitions to develop the land, razing the impoverished shantytown of Talia Toral in the process. But with the vast fortune of unscrupulous business titan Don Gustavo (Erando Gonzalez), the duplicitous, smooth-talking lawyer Lisandro (co-writer Andres Crespo Arosemena), and an easily influenced jury led by assistant D.A. Ingrid Cedeño (Maya Zapata), Talia Toral’s residents aren’t going to be removed without a fight, setting up an explosive confrontation in a land where everyone has their price.

En una pacífica arboleda en las afueras de la ciudad de Guayaquil, Ecuador, un venado entra en la mira del cazador, se aprieta el gatillo y un joven turista cae muerto detonando un polvorín de avaricia, poder y violencia en este atrapante nuevo misterio del co-escritor y director Sebastián Cordero (Europa Report, Crónicas). Cuando se descubre que quien disparó es un rico terrateniente, Emilio Baquerizo (Daniel Adum Gilbert), el juicio desnuda su ambición de construir en esas tierras arrasando el empobrecido barrio de Talia Toral. Pese a la inmensa fortuna del titán de los negocios Don Gustavo (Erando González), al inescrupuloso y parlanchín abogado Lisandro (co-escritor Andrés Crespo Arosemena),y al fácilmente influenciable jurado liderado por la asistente de la procuraduría Ingrid Cedeño (Maya Zapata), los residentes de Talia Toral no se van a dejar expulsar sin luchar, desatando un enfrentamiento feroz en una tierra donde todos tienen precio.
