By the way, the translation for the movie title is ‘Soul Robbers’, if you were wondering. ‘Ladronas de Almas’ is set during the Mexican Independence War in the early 1800s. In a remotely located estate, a group of insurgents are seeking a home invasion, which apparently is inhabited by a wheelchair-ridden old man, his three daughters and a servant.
