Synopsis

Set against the gritty canvas of Mexico City, The Zone paints a visceral picture of a society torn apart by class conflict. An affluent suburban neighborhood known as The Zone stands fortified by cement walls, barbed wire and security cameras amidst a poverty-stricken city. It's a plush sanctuary exclusive to Mexico's elite, where justice reigns outside the law. When a violent storm breaches The Zone's barrier, three teenage outsiders sneak in and attempt a petty robbery that ends in tragedy, triggering a heated vigilante manhunt for the only surviving intruder.
