Plot – Spoilers:
17-year-old Maria lives in a small Colombian town where the only respectable job for women is at a flower farm. She’s bored of her job and her boyfriend who seems content to live and die where he grew up. At home, her sister is a single mom obsessed with the health of her baby, and who hardly contributes to the family income, yet keeps the pressure on Maria to work a job she despises as it’s vital for funding the baby’s needs.

But things are coming to a head. Maria’s just realized she’s pregnant. She feels her boyfriend is a loser and not a worthy dad to her baby. She’s also just quit her job. Early on in the film, we see Maria climbing a roof while her boyfriend remains unwilling to join her. This sets up her nature as someone willing to take chances to move higher up.

Soon the reckoning moment arrives in the form of Franklin on his big bike, which is in stark contrast to her boyfriend’s cycle. Franklin is familiar with Bogota and its opportunities and offers her a well-paying job as a drug mule. Maria accepts.

o/t It looks like Madge is on her last few days/hours. I expect many on here if not all could not care less but for me once she has gone the Monarchy of the UK will have lost any value.
She did have a life of privalidge but unlike the modern movie stars, pundits, vloggers, tik-tok masturbaters, sport-pedos she had a sense of duty and got up everyday and worked hard at her job and did more for England than any elected trougher.
So for me she will be very much missed and unreplaceable. Although 96 is a good innning.
God Save the Queen.

Fuck Chuck and fuck his son with his dildo loving arse.

She’s been wearing diapers for at least 14 years. They trot her out from the nursing home and put on her Thomas Jefferson wig from time to time just to make it look like her brain isn’t mush. Her caregivers will be thrilled that they don’t have to smell and clean the Queen’s ass anymore. She’s another good for nothing thief. If there is hell she will be going there (there isn’t – religion was designed to keep the masses in line so shitheads like the Queen can live in luxury). Good riddance to that crook.

Already saw this movie, don’t think it’s fucked up enough to warrant a place on this site, but it’s an incredible film regardless and you all should watch it!

Never heard of the film till today and love this site for showing me it. Not every movie has to be full on gore to be disturbing..

Peoples tastes are different. Of the 700 plus films on this site I personally have interest in about 10% but I also appreciate that the other 90% is liked by others. It is truly unclear to me what makes it onto the list as it not just it being fucked up but also being hard to find.
Yesterday I watched ..Petrovs Flu.. which definitely has some good scenes and it was not easy .for me. to find but I am not sure it is worthy of this place because 2 hours 30 minutes with only a few worthy scenes is a tough call.
Samhel contributions are available elsewhere.

Some single moms are entitled as fuck. Pay for your own damn baby or ask the dude who creampied you to. Nobody owes you a fucking thing. It doesn’t take a village it takes you and your partner to look after your own spawn.

Can not help thinking that the spunk dribbling out of a fanny is not the stuff that gets to make babies. When did cream pie become a term for pregnancy.
