Natalie (Gwendolyn Garver) and Carsten (Aisan Bristow) are two American tourists who have come to Mexico in an effort to fix their relationship - but it seems too little too late as they constantly fight, and one day Carsten just leaves and doesn't come back. Natalie goes looking for him around town, but can't find a trace, so she eventually files a missing persons report at the police - and is in for a shock, as apparently Carsten's a drug runner in Miguel Jimenez's (Fernando Gaviria) cartel who has used this trip, like many trips before, to go about some shady business. Leaving the police station, Natalie's intercepted by Sebastian (Xavier Jimenez-March), a small fry crook who's also looking for Carsten for the police, as finding him would clean his slate, and he convinces Natalie that they would do best working together. And he gives Natalie the address of Carsten's mistress Cecilia (Tania Ángeles) who might know about Carsten's wherabouts. When Natalie visits Cecilia though, the two get into a fight, which culminates in Natalie strangling Cecilia to death. Still desparate to find Carsten, Sebastian takes care of Cecilia's body for Natalie - and then a bombshell is dropped when Sebastian learns that Carsten's body has been found, but he has been dead a lot longer than since when Natalie claims he was missing. Natalie explains this away with a mental condition, and Sebastian believes her, but the police might not, now will Carsten's associates - especially since with Carsten's disappearance a whole lot of money has gone missing, and everybody will believe it's with Natalie now -, so whether they want it or not, Natalie and Sebastian are in the same boat, on the run from the same people. But does Sebastian know everything about Natalie's true motives?


Fragmented is a very cool thriller that might have been done on a budget, but it really makes perfect use of its locations, and while it has outbursts of violence, it's much more driven by narrative than spectacle, and its clever script  with many an unexpected twist and interesting characters one can care for even if they're fallible really sees to it that one's glued to the screen from beginning to end. And of course, solid performances by all involved also help to make this an entertaining and unusual genre effort.
