Magallanes (Damián Alcázar) works as a taxi driver in the streets of Lima. But he has another job chauffeuring a retired colonel (legendary Argentine star Federico Luppi) whom he once served in the army many years ago. One day, Celina (Magaly Solier) steps into Magallanes’ cab, and he recognizes her as a former war time sex-slave captive of the Colonel’s. Haunted and conflicted, Magallanes digs up an old photo that could be presented as evidence of the Colonel’s crimes, and begins to concoct a plot to blackmail the Colonel’s son (Christian Meier).

Salvador del Solar’s formidable feature debut is based on Alonso Cueto’s novel La Pasajera. With a solemn tone and searing climax, del Solar reflect the hardships Peruvians faced during the most violent years of Shining Path, a time when citizens dreaded not only terrorist violence, but also their own ruthless and repressive government. —Andres Castillo

This film is also a part of the Jordan Alexander Ressler Screenwriting Competition.
