La Soga is an edgy, action-packed thriller set in the Dominican Republic and New York City. The film follows the personal journey of Luisito a.k.a. La Soga, the son of a butcher turned government killer, who risks everything for justice. Inspired by true events, La Soga depicts corruption, brutality and one man's struggle to find redemption. In a poor neighborhood in the Dominican Republic where the streets are run by deported drug dealers, a modest butcher struggles to raise his sensitive ten year old son, Luisito. When Luisito witnesses the brutal murder of his father by a vicious criminal named Rafa (Paul Calderon), his life is forever altered.
Twenty years later, Luisito (Manny Perez) works for General Colon (Juan Fernandez), the head of the Dominican secret police. Colon preys on the impressionable Luisito’s desire for revenge and transforms him into a heartless killer.
Into Luisito’s world enters Jenny (Denise Quinones, Miss Universe 2001), a childhood sweetheart who left for New York shortly before Luisito’s family tragedy. Unaware of his occupation, Jenny falls for the seemingly innocent Luisito. As Luisito investigates the General and unearths the greatest betrayal of all, he must find his own kind of justice, while dealing with the consequences of his own actions.
