La Soga is an edgy, action-packed thriller set in the Dominican Republic and New York City. In a poor neighborhood where the streets are run by deported drug dealers, a hard-working butcher struggles to raise his sensitive 10-year-old son, Luisito. When Luisito witnesses the murder of his father, his life changes forever. Twenty years later, Luisito becomes chief henchman for General Colon, head of the Dominican secret police. He is an emotionally hollow instrument of justice, perpetually kept in control by Colon’s promise to deliver his father’s killer.

Into Luisito’s world enters Jenny, a childhood sweetheart who left for New York shortly before his family tragedy. Unaware of his occupation, Jenny falls for Luisito and the love she shows him stirs the conscience that had lain dormant since his childhood. This, however, turns him against the ruthless General Colon and his death squad.

Trinidad + Tobago premiere.
