Julia is a drunk. She loses her job in real estate and at an A.A. meeting meets a neighbor, Elena, an addled Mexican woman who talks about having lots of money and a plan to kidnap her own son from the boy’s grandfather, a wealthy businessman. Elena wants Julia’s help. Julia says yes with her own plan to do this alone. Following Elena’s plan, Julia manages to grab the boy, Tom, who’s about 10. Now what? She asks for a ransom. Tom’s grandfather and his money are connected directly to Mexican drug trafficking, so Julia is up against long odds. Will anyone make it out alive?
