Synopsis

In a poor neighborhood in the Dominican Republic, where the streets are run by deported drug dealers, a modest butcher struggles to raise his sensitive 10-year old son, Luisito. When Luisito witnesses the brutal murder of his father by a vicious criminal named Rafa, his life is forever altered. Twenty years later, Luisito works for General Colon, the head of the Dominican secret police. Colon preys on the impressionable Luisito's desire for revenge and transforms him into a heartless killer. Into Luisito's world enters Jenny, a childhood sweetheart who left for New York shortly before Luisito's family tragedy. Unaware of his occupation, Jenny falls for the seemingly innocent Luisito. As Luisito investigates the General and unearths the greatest betrayal of all, he must find his own kind of justice, while dealing with the consequences of his own actions.
