The thousands of people who cross Mexico on the back of the train used by migrants to reach the US, “La Bestia,” are exposed to many dangers along their journey. But there is a group of Mexican women, “Las Patronas,” who, every day since 1995, prepare food to throw to the unprotected people atop the train as it goes by. This documentary is an intimate look and personal diary that traces the border between the life Las Patronas were given and the life they chose. In the middle of a country at war, in a world where hope appears to be lost, Las Patronas rescue a diminishing human trait: love.
