Synopsis

‘Behind the blood’ is the shocking true story about three men living in Honduras, one of the most dangerous countries in the world in terms of daily violence. Daniel Pacheco tries to save lives, but that’s no simple matter. The killings are countless, not just by the drug cartels, but also by the police and the army. Pacheco lives in the midst of it, risking his own life. Matathan is an opposite of Pacheso, a hitman who openly talks about his occupation. He says he has had enough and wants to start a new life, but it is extremely difficult to get out of the vicious circle of killings. And the third one is a TV journalist Orlin Castro whose daily job is to report killings. Following these three men, Dutch-American filmmaker Loretta van der Horst, who was born in Honduras, gets frighteningly close to the horrific violence that no one seems able to end.
