Spanning the time between World War II and the Vietnam war.
The film was directed by Antonio Campos (Simon Killer, 2016’s Christine) and it’s explained that the film “renders a seductive and horrific landscape that pits the just against the corrupted.” When previously talking about the film, Campos said, “It’s a multi-strand narrative set between the end of World War II and the beginning of America’s involvement in Vietnam in which a motley group of characters’ lives all intersect.”
