The trailer of the film had dropped recently, and follows Ulises Samperio, a leader of a small street gang named ‘Les Terkos’. The gang keep themselves busy by listening to cumbia music, attending dance parties and flaunting their style and attitude. However, Ulises runs into a misunderstanding with a local cartel and is made to leave to an immigrant community in New York City, from where he tries his best to put his life back together.
The first thing that stands out from the trailer is indeed lead actor Juan Daniel Garcia Trevino’s hairstyle, which does seem like a mess-up at the barbershop, but is actually the unique element in the gang’s personal styling. The trailer does give out many shades of the events that take place in Ulises’ life, but the setting of the film and its characters all seem a little too new, which are the main factors motivating us to put this film on the watch list.
The feature film’s film script has been in the rounds right from when it won the Bengala Award in 2013, finally finding its way out to film festivals last year.
I’m No Longer Here releases on Netflix, on the 27th of May.
