Jack Bishop is a picture-perfect husband and father in a peaceful Texas border town. But when his 11-year-old daughter is kidnapped, he’ll hunt her abductors – and unleash his own tortured soul – into a Mexican hell of barrios and bordellos controlled by the mysterious religion of La Santa Muerte. When a man has too much to hide and nothing to lose, should he dare to search for the truth?
In sleepy Del Rio, near the border between Texas and Mexico, strange things are afoot. In the scene-setting prologue, writer/director Dror Soref’s supernatural-tinged mystery-thriller offers a glimpse of black magic and brutal murder before introducing Jack Bishop (The Mentalist’s Simon Baker), a widowed loan officer, his beautiful Mexican-American wife, Amaya (Paz Vega, Sex and Lucia), and his rebellious 12-year-old daughter, Toby (Chloe Moretz, who previously appeared with Baker on The Guardian). After Toby disappears during soccer practice, the tight-knit townspeople come together to track her down. While the cops, including Amaya’s cousin Casper Navarro (Michael DeLorenzo) and Detective Sanchez (The Shield’s Benito Martinez), pursue leads, the media reports on the growing Santa Muerte sect (a Christo-Pagan religion centering on blood sacrifice), and Amaya persuades her skeptical husband to consult a South of the Border psychic. In the course of the various investigations, it transpires that Jack and Amaya have been hiding crucial details about their respective pasts. After a slow and steady build-up, events take a turn for the weird and violent as Jack comes closer to finding his daughter at the same time the authorities come closer to finding out his true identity. Soref’s feature debut presents a twisted ride into the dark night of one man’s divided soul. Best known for his amiable television work, the versatile Baker reveals a more intense side little seen since George Romero’s Land of the Dead. --Kathleen C. Fennessy
