Director: Rodrigo Plá

Nominated for 7 Mexican Academy Awards! Past San Diego Latino Film Festival award-winner Rodrigo Pla’s (La Zona) sensationally tense thriller, UN MONSTRUO DE MIL CABEZAS, is an incisive portrayal of a woman driven to extreme measures when her ill husband is denied assistance from his insurance provider.

When Sonia receives the news that her husband’s cancer has progressed to a terminal stage, she races to secure the insurance company approval for the care that can help him. Met with indifference and negligence at every turn, Sonia’s desperation triggers a primal survival instinct as a series of increasingly violent confrontations unfold. A sharp, urgent tale of a distraught woman intent on protecting her family at all costs, Rodrigo Plá’s latest film is an engrossing combination of thriller, drama and timely socio-political commentary.

Critic Quotes:
“Brilliant.” - Screen Daily

“A lean and efficient mix of thriller, drama, and socio-political commentary.” - The Hollywood Reporter

“Unique for how it captures the urgency of a system that's designed to frustrate and confuse people into helplessness.” - IndieWire

“The movie deserves to be known, first of all, as a terrific example of intelligent, captivating film craft-further proof of the recent strength of Mexican cinema.” - RogerEbert.com

“Plá's film is a caustic, genuine swipe at a selfish and insincere society which is content to make money from the suffering of ordinary people.” - CineVue

“Plá achieves a visual style that is ice-cold but also deeply human - a clever way to depict an all-powerful system that feeds on our lives and thrives on our fallibility.” - Village Voice
