Sarita (Karen Martínez) goes out dancing one night at the insistence of her free-spirited sister, Bea. The next morning, she 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. Praised for its “gritty authenticity” (Screen Daily) and cast with almost entirely non-professional actors, CADEJO BLANCO is an intense, nail-biting thriller that digs deep into the underbelly of Guatemalan gang culture.
