Peruvian Taxi Driver

War veteran Magallanes earns a living as a taxi driver in Lima and when a woman one day gets into his taxi, his life is turned upside down. He instantly recognizes her as Celina, the young indigenous girl who was kidnapped and used as a sex slave by the Peruvian colonel he served under during the 80s. In an attempt to help the poor woman, he gets hold of an incriminating photo and plans to blackmail his former superior. Equal parts suspense thriller and historical commentary, MAGALLANES is an exciting film which resonates on the level of collective memory.
