Country:Guatemala/Spain/Mexico Language:Spanish/English
A group of Guatemalan teenagers are ill prepared for the precarious journey that takes them from their native country to what they hope will be a bright new life in the United States. Diego Quemada-Díez's debut feature draws on outstanding performances from his young, non-professional cast.

"The film succeeds as both a gritty, uncompromising portrait of the teenagers' travels and a moving, eloquent testament to the power of friendship and camaraderie in the most testing of circumstances." (London FF)

Winner, Un Certain Regard, Talent Prize, Cannes 2013
