Unlike her rebellious sister Bea, Sarita doesn’t spend much time partying or clubbing. But after being talked into a night out in Guatemala City, Sarita dresses up and joins Bea on the dance floor, letting loose for a rare moment. Following a drunken argument with her sister, Sarita goes home early, leaving Bea at the club with her gang-affiliated ex-boyfriend, Andrés. In the morning, Sarita is distraught to find that Bea never made it home. When the police seem uninterested in pursuing her sister’s disappearance, Sarita realizes it is up to her to find out what happened to Bea. Convinced that Andrés is responsible, Sarita approaches him, posing as an aspiring member of his gang, and slowly immerses herself into his world. Finding herself in increasingly dangerous situations, Sarita remains steadfast, stopping at nothing to get to the truth. A breathtaking crime thriller, CADEJO BLANCO craftily unfolds its suspenseful layers against the backdrop of Guatemala's grisly gang violence. —G.S.
