Nick (Josh Hutcherson, The Hunger Games) is an innocent surfer from Canada who decides, together with his brother Dylan (Brady Corbet), to go to Colombia and set up a modest surfing retreat near Medellin. There he will meet the woman of his dreams, Maria (Claudia Traisac), who is busy campaigning for her politician uncle. That uncle turns out to be Pablo (Academy Award-winner Benicio del Toro), who invites Nick to a party at his “cottage”, a sprawling, Xanadulike jungle fortress. When he hears of the trouble Nick and Dylan are having with some local thugs, Pablo vows to “take care of it.” The thugs turn up dead, and suddenly Nick finds himself immersed in a world of wild extravagance, corruption and bloodshed — one he will find nearly impossible to escape.
