Deutschland / USA / Frankreich / Mexiko 2015/2016, Spielfilm

Inhalt

Laura, a scientist sent by the United Nations, and her male colleagues arrive in Bolivia only to be kidnapped and held in a remote location by a masked man and his armed gang. Despite the circumstances, she spends a lot of time with him, feeling herself strangely and increasingly drawn to the man. An unusual, almost magical dynamic develops between them, Laura winning his trust through her empathy. As their intimacy grows and their conversations become more personal, she learns it is not ransom money that is the mysterious stranger’s motive, but rather something far, far greater; the urgent need to prevent an environmental catastrophe and human tragedy of almost unimaginable proportions.
