PLEASE HOLD

In the near future, a young working-class Latino is wrongfully arrested by a drone. Realizing he has no means of recourse in a fully automated, privatized justice system, he attempts to reach a human being who can set things right. This biting social satire examines a profit-driven penal system where marginalized communities are left to shoulder the costs.
