    • Synopsis
    • Seeking to escape suburban boredom, 26-year-old med student Marc travels to Cali, Colombia, on an exchange. No sooner has he arrived in the hospital than he is thrust into the operating room, as if in a war zone. The beautiful but bloody cartel capital of Cali is a battleground, which his conservative host family tries to keep Marc well away from. But Marc finds himself drawn to the racy and dangerous life in the favela of Siloé, a neighborhood full of teenage killers and seductive girls. There, he meets kiosk owner Wanda, a charming alcoholic, and little Pavito, a boy who supplies him with coke. Soon Marc is being pulled into the fast and furious life of the favelas, with fast kicks and faster women, which brings him into conflict with his hospital and host family. He gets thrown out and takes up residence in Wanda's kiosk as barrio doctor, which earns him the title of Dr. Aleman, the German Doctor. When gang leader Melchor wants him to become his personal doctor, Marc has to make a choice. Melchor is on a bloody crusade for control of the town, and Marc decides he has to try and stop him. The gritty and gutsy gangland gringo is played by German A-list star August Diehl. Shot on location in Cali.
