Y Castigo (And Punishment)

Based on the first chapter of Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s novel, Crime and Punishment, Raddy is a young man who is trying to win the heart of Daniela, an even younger girl. To do this, Raddy thinks that he needs money, so he goes to Sequia, a middle aged man, to sell him a cellphone for a big sum of money. But Sequia, who doesn’t like Raddy, has a different plan.
