Sarita lives with her sister Bea in a working-class neighbourhood in Guatemala City. One night after a party, Bea doesn’t come home. Convinced that her disappearance has something to do with Andrés, her sister’s dangerous ex, Sarita manages to befriend him and infiltrate his gang.
Narrowly avoiding death at every turn, and with an unwavering determination in the face of the men who underestimate her, Sarita becomes increasingly involved with Andrés and the ruthless, violent world of his gang. As she searches for answers about what happened to her sister, she realizes that the truth is a lot more complicated than she could have imagined.

“Cadejo blanco” is Justin Lerner’s third feature film. His second feature film “The Automatic Hate” competed at PÖFF in 2015.
