Behind the Blood

Seen through the eyes of a killer, a priest and a crime reporter, this film examines the thin line between good and evil in the dangerous city of San Pedro Sula, Honduras.

Determined to bring violence to an end in his neighborhood, Pastor Daniel risks his life for peace. Orlin, Honduras' celebrity crime reporter, navigates the nightly underworld with ease, fully aware that his work doesn't just provide for his family, it also puts his life at risk. Matatan, a killer and close friend of Pastor Pacheco, gets his thrills from seeing the fear in his victims' eyes just before they die...
