La Civil is drama, based on true events, from director Teodora Ana Mihai. Cielo (Arcelia Ramìrez)'s teenage daughter, Laura, is kidnapped in Northern Mexico. Despite paying several ransoms, Laura is not returned. When the authorities offer no support in the search, Cielo takes matters into her own hands, turning from a housewife into a vengeful militant. Her relentless search puts her in the crosshairs of cartel members and dubious officials alike… La Civil is a heart-breaking and important look at a country in crisis ruled by narco-violence and corruption.
