A dysfunctional father-son relationship unexpectedly improves after the teenager commits an atrocious crime and turns to dad for help in Fernando Guzzoni’s striking second feature Jesús. The intense drama-thriller explores the generational gulf between adults who grew up under Pinochet’s dictatorship and modern-day youth living in a world with no moral compass.
When the flesh of your flesh is rotten, will you go to any extend to protect your own? Or will you cut them lose? Jesus is a story of the ultimate betrayal.
