Lust and Fear

A steamy, button pushing thriller twisting through the dark exotic jungle

Lucio is an apathetic former detective struggling with his inner demons. To afford to buy a birthday gift for his estranged daughter he accepts an unexpected job to solve a crime deep in the jungles bordering Argentina, Paraguay and Brazil. There is a chaotic and violent underworld beneath the murder he investigates. The environment wraps around him and begins to suffocate him like a boa constrictor. As the story unfolds we are mesmerized by the performances, the moody atmosphere and impeding fear of violence.
As Lucio uncovers layers of hidden secrets and crimes behind this seemingly open and shut murder case, a devastating femme fatale appears to seduce him. Although he is unsure if she is for real or a lure, the two dive headlong into a torrid romance and Lucio gets embroiled in child trafficking, betrayals, revenge and murder.
It will be “the dead,” a pagan myth of the jungle that will paradoxically rescue him and bring him back to life.
