Hardworking family man Jorge is just barely making ends meet. When he gets mugged by Kalule, a neighborhood delinquent, Jorge's son decides to confront Kalule, only to get himself shot in the process. Sentenced to a scant 2 years in prison for the offense, Kalule, released and now intent on revenge, goes on the warpath, terrorizing Jorge's family. With his wife, son and daughter at the mercy of a thug, Jorge has no choice but to take justice into his own hands, and live with the emotional and psychological consequences. Based on a true story.

A low budget film on the conflicts of violence committed by a father in a small Chilean town where he worked in the "Centre for Forestry Research Santa Julia." Too bad very little of the man's professional work was featured (or deleted) and focused entirely on what led up to the incident and its brief aftermath. Take away was how far would a man go to protect his family, this time, an intellectual man, a good father and responsible husband, i.e. a more or less typical man in the Americas.

The hot tempered wife:
Wife: Are you happy now?
Husband: So, it's my fault?
Wife: The night that Jorge went out, you should have talked to him instead of watching TV.

We sent the judge an application for an injunction. Now we await his decision.
-Then, he had an injunction?...
No. The judge will have to decide that. Now we sent the complaints.
-Can we see the prosecutor?
No, she's busy.
-That is, she won't see us. The prosecutor said she would revoke his release and she is doing nothing about that.
-For now, it remains only injunctive relief. This does not mean that a crime was committed...
Whatever? That I have a dead son?
-Calm.
Calm, the hell...
-So I can not help you.
It is your duty to help me! This is your job! Do not stay here, sitting on
your ass ...
