Adrift /A la deriva

Ramón lives a simple and serene life in the Argentinean countryside but faced with unemployment and family responsibilities he finds himself seduced by the promise of easy money that drug trafficking offers. Against a background of beautifully photographed landscapes a brooding drama emerges as Ramón attempts to navigate his own moral conflicts and, at the same time, maintain a troubled friendship with his partner in crime Antonio (a loose cannon who rapidly falls out of favour with their dealer bosses). A La Deriva raises stark issues of survival, family, masculinity and responsibility, played out in an atmosphere of uncertainty and lurking violence. The result is a compelling and subtly textured thriller.
