Jorge is a former boxer who's drowning in debt, and fears he will consequently lose his beloved wife and son. But it's almost impossible to find work in a Portugal beset by economic crisis. Desperate, Jorge takes the job of debt-collector, which will lead him to the path of crime and violence. Directed by Portuguese Marco Martins (Alice, How to Draw a Perfect Circle), the drama was a winner at this year's Venice IFF in the Horizons section.
