"I had a friend once
who made us all feel taller.
He was no better or worse than any of us,
but the way he lived showed us that
we were not the weak little kids we’d always been told.
He made us stand up.
made us better people.
He’s dead now, somewhere out in those old sugar fields.” - juan
The last honest cop in Puerto Rico finds an UNLIKELY alliance with a MID-LEVEL DRUG DEALER on hiS own PATH of REVENGE against MOISES, the CARTEL KINGPIN responsible for the MURDER of his PARENTS and CHILDHOOD FRIEND.
SUGARFIELDS BRINGS TOGETHER DARK CHARACTERS DRAWN FROM TRADITIONAL STORY-TELLING THEMES OF TRAGEDY AND JUSTICE AND COUPLED WITH THE VIOLENT BRUTALITY OF ASIAN EXTREME CINEMA.
THE STORY EXPLORES THE INTERTWINED LIVES OF a maverick, yet HONEST COP, A BRILLIANT DRUG-DEALER, and A MELANCHOLIC YOUNG WOMAN HAUNTED BY HER PAST AND A CAVALCADE OF OTHER INDIVIDUALS CUT FROM A SIMILAR CLOTH.
THIS FILM IS A JOYRIDE FOR THE SENSES- A VISCERAL ADVENTURE WITH THEMES OF LOVE, LOSS, FAMILY, TRAGEDY, POWER, CORRUPTION AND VENGEANCE.
