After the death of her mother due to a heat wave, Xóchitl takes her environmental activism to even greater extremes. In one of her most daring acts, she assembles a group of young people to break into and destroy an oil pipeline in Texas. Rebellious and committed, the members of the band are certain: they must do something –even if it is a gesture– to stop the climate crisis in a world on fire. After the success of Cam (2018), Daniel Goldhaber once again confirms his ability to alternate genres, appropriate all the classic tropes and create stories that are as original as they are stripped to basics. Thus, the American director delivers an urgent film, but one that goes against the grain of those that follow the same line: it does not intend to be solemn or instructive, but rather explosive and provocative. The virtue of this heist film is based on the fact that –to quote one of the protagonists– it does not go beyond what is just necessary.
