The Padre

Year 2018
Runtime 95 mins
Language English

Padre (Tim Roth) is a small-time con man on the run from his dogged pursuers, U.S. Court Justice Nemes (Nick Nolte) and local police officer Gaspar (Luis Guzmán). When the Padre is caught mid-con, he flees the scene in a stolen car, unaware that a precocious 16-year-old girl, Lena (Henríquez), is stowing away in the back seat. After she blackmails him into letting her join his journey, the duo plan their biggest heist yet — not always aware of the dangers of working with each other and the law closing in on them.

This feature is proceeded by the short film JERRY POTTS: MAN OF ACTION.
