Much-praised suspenseful road movie.  Three Guatemalan youngsters attempt a hazardous illegal crossing from Mexico into the USA.  Bolstered by strikingly beautiful cinematography and involving characters, this beguiling, heartbreaking first feature from Diego Quemada-Díez shows his debt to Ken Loach with whom he worked on three films.

A drama of lacerating power and honesty. The performances are tremendous.” (Tim Robey – Daily Telegraph)
