A group of innocent people are charged with human trafficking and thrown into prison. The authorities announce they've dealt a blow to organised crime; the public is reassured. Pagadores are what the victims of such procedures are called in Mexico.
Two women, their voices echoing over the landscape and highways of Mexico from north to south, tell how official corruption and injustice allowed violence to take control of their lives, desires and dreams. An emotional and evocative journey, steeped not only in loss and pain, but also in love, dignity and resistance.
Tempestad, dir. Tatiana Huezo, Mexico 2016, 105 mins
