    • Reminiscent of Polanski's 'Chinatown'

      This socially impactful film noir is based on true events, about housing inspector Roberto Morales who investigates the suspicious circumstances of a fatal fire in a residential hotel in San Francisco's rapidly gentrifying Latino Mission District and finds himself face to face with murder in the streets, corruption at City Hall and the mysterious Sofia Nido, a beautiful but dangerous flame from his past.

      This stunningly filmed and superbly directed thriller deals with a hot, current topic millions will relate to: the gentrification of low-income ethnic neighborhoods which makes the movie extremely timely.

      The screenplay was written by San Francisco Poet Laureate Alejandro Murguia.
