In 1980 Madrid, filmmaker Enrique Goded is scrambling for inspiration. A bearded young man arrives at his production office, claiming to be his old parochial school friend Ignacio Rodriguez. Ignacio has written a story called "The Visit" about their early experiences with a sexually predatory priest named Manolo, which would make a great project--but only if he can play the lead. Enrique takes the story home and reads. And reads. Filled with standard deceits, double-crosses, passions, desires, seductions, crimes of the flesh and of lucre, this film noir thriller is appropriately convoluted and dark, and involves blackmail, false identities, lust, drug addiction, and cover-ups--just for starters--since the story we see may or may not be the one that Enrique read

"La Soga is an edgy, action-packed thriller set in the Dominican Republic and New York City. The film follows the personal journey of Luisito a.k.a. "La Soga," the son of a butcher turned government killer, who risks everything for justice. Inspired by true events, La Soga depicts corruption, brutality and one man's struggle to find redemption. In a poor neighborhood in the Dominican Republic where the streets are run by deported drug dealers, a modest butcher struggles to raise his sensitive ten year old son, Luisito. When Luisito witnesses the brutal murder of his father by a vicious criminal named Rafa (Paul Calderon), his life is forever altered. Twenty years later, Luisito (Manny Perez) works for General Colon (Juan Fernandez), the head of the Dominican secret police. Colon preys on the impressionable Luisito's desire for revenge and transforms him into a heartless killer. Into Luisito's world enters Jenny (Denise Quinones), a childhood sweetheart who left for New York shortly before Luisito's family tragedy. Unaware of his occupation, Jenny falls for the seemingly innocent Luisito. As Luisito investigates the General and unearths the greatest betrayal of all, he must find his own kind of justice, while dealing with the consequences of his own actions"--Container
