Separated from his son after a stretch in gaol, upon his release Trujillo's typical rough-diamond character is taken under the wing of a cop who pulls a few strings and gets his protégé a place by his side as his partner on the beat. Gradually he proves his worth and courage upholding the law, and wins the trust of his immediate boss. But all the while he's eaten up inside by the knowledge that somewhere out there in the big city his son is living rough, and he is driven by the need to find him. His son, meanwhile, has dropped through the cracks of society into a shadowy gang of child-robbers, who squat in slums and survive by selling their spoils to a Fagin-type fence. With no protection, the kids are forced to look after themselves, and a spiral of violence swirls through the film as it winds up to its inevitably tragic conclusion.

Ratings explained: 

All films are rated for audio and video these can be found in the specifications in product descriptions.

Everyone rates in different ways and what maybe an 8 to me might be a 6 or 9 to you so please bear in mind that they are there as a rough guide only.

A rating of 8.5 will normally be direct from a VHS master or equivalent

9 upwards will be from good quality TV broadcasts, screeners etc.

8 and below will be from 2nd  or even 3rd generation prints from all types of master.

Fullscreen & widescreen titles are marked with  a W or F or some 16:9 or 4:3

Widescreen can mean anything from a slight scope to 16:9 anamorphic. We try and mention this in descriptions when we can.

Every title on the site is region free so no matter where in the world you live you should have no problems playing any of our discs. Your only requirement is a DVD player capable of receiving a PAL and NTSC signal, about 99% of European players have this facility, the rest of the world check the net for compatible players.
