Synopsis

Distraught by the sudden disappearance of their son Leon, the Spitzes', an elderly couple, decide to hire a French private detective, Lombard - known to their son-in-law Carlos, to investigate the mysterious circumstances surrounding Leon's silence. The testimony of Leon's girlfriend soon plunges Lombard into the disturbing milieu of child-trade. A series of violent confrontations with a network of paedophiles operating in Mexico slowly draws Lombard back to Leon's own family, as this thriller reveals its darkest final twist.
