Operation E - Trailer with English Subtitles


Small-time Colombian coca farmer José Crisanto finds himself enmeshed in big-time politics when guerillas bring him a sickly infant to care for. Fearing for the child’s life, Crisanto takes him to a clinic. There, social workers seize the baby and place him in foster care. Three years later, the boy’s identity is revealed when the guerillas return, giving Crisanto just three days to find the son of kidnapped politician Clara Rojas. 109 minutes. Spanish with English subtitles.

“Spanish star Tosar shines… striking a fine balance between ruse and innocence, fear and courage, powerlessness and adaptability.” — The Hollywood Reporter
