Sarita goes out dancing one night at the insistence of her
free-spirited sister, Bea. Uncharacteristically, Sarita dances the
night away, heading home alone when the party drags on too late. The
next morning, after calling friends and neighbors, Sarita begins to
panic when she realizes that Bea never made it home. The police are
indifferent and unhelpful, but Sarita suspects that Bea's
disappearance has something to do with Andrés, her sister’s dangerous
ex. Realizing she must take matters into her own hands, Sarita finds a
way to befriend him and infiltrate his gang. With an unwavering
determination, Sarita becomes increasingly involved with Andrés and
the ruthless, violent underworld of Guatemalan street gangs. Praised
for its "gritty authenticity" (Screen Daily) and cast with almost
entirely non-professional actors, Cadejo Blanco is an intense,
nail-biting thriller in the vein of Sin Nombre and Maria Full of
Grace, that digs deep into the underbelly of gang culture.
