Perro Bomba - Focus | Alfredo Castro 2021
Yeka, a 13-year-old girl, is forced to enter adulthood after a stray bullet kills her best friend. Due to impunity for those who shot her friend, Yeka starts her own investigation. Through Vanyelinna, a twelve year old girl who befriends her, she infiltrates a dangerous drug dealer's family who are considered guilty, only to find out that her suspicions are based on prejudices and that they are a loving and supportive clan who help her in her mourning process. When Yeka begins to develop feelings for the family, she finds out that the stray bullet was shot by a young member of the clan. She will have to decide if she accuses them or stays quiet. After all, justice is not as simple as its looks.
This film tells the story of Yeka, who lives in a small coastal town immersed in the timelessness of the constant murmur of the sea. The city is crossed by birds that unveil its half-finished buildings of light material, rusty tin roofs and walls twisted by the wind that give personality to this beach universe, both precarious and relaxed. This nature-modernity dialectic configures the particular atmosphere of this film, homologous to the transition from childhood to adulthood of our protagonist.
