Executive produced by Spike Lee and directed by NYU grad Joseph Wladika, the Columbian production Manos Sucias (Dirty Hands) will screen at this year's Tribeca Film Festival, which runs April 16 through April 27. 

Scripted by Alan Blanco and Wladika, Manos Sucias stars Cristian Advincula and Jarlin Martinez as Delio and Jacobo; the latter is a desperate fisherman and seasoned trafficker, who along with the naive Delio, decide to traffic millions of dollars worth of cocaine up the Colombian Pacific coast. 

Here's the synopsis, courtesy of TFF's website:

Towing a submerged torpedo in the wake of their battered fishing boat, ‘Jacobo,’ a desperate fisherman and Delio, a naive kid, embark on a journey trafficking millions of dollars of cocaine up the Pacific coast of Colombia. While Jacobo is a seasoned trafficker, young Delio is unprepared for the grim reality. Shot entirely on location—in areas that bear the indelible scars of drug trafficking and guerrilla warfare—director Josef Kubota Wladyka establishes a sense of place with meticulous sensitivity, capturing the visceral paradox of incredible vibrancy yet devastating poverty which permeate this war-torn region. Refusing to glamorize the drug trade, Manos Sucias instead offers a rare glimpse of its devastating effects. Executive Produced by Spike Lee.

Watch the melodious and intriguing trailer below:
