Revenge-movie with a sinister edge
Patricia is a normal girl living a normal upperclass life until one day a gang of thugs take her and her family as hostages. witnessing her mother being forced to watch how her mother is sexually abused, her father murdered Patricia takes on a somewhat different perspective on life. She devotes her life to hunt down the men who destroyed her family and in order to find them, Patricia has to descend into a world she never knew existed. LA BÙSQUEDA is a very dark film about obsession and revenge and the price everybody involved has to pay. It´s not the kind of film that tries to deliver a vision of hope, but rather a sinister world of cynicism. The only escape for Patricia (and everybody else) seems to be the kind of loyalty and love Patricia shows for her brother or her friend.
