Juan, Sara, and Samuel, three teenagers from the slums of Guatemala, travel to the United States in search of a better life. On their journey through Mexico, they meet Chauk, an indigenous youth from Chiapas who doesn’t speak Spanish. Traveling together in freight trains and walking on railroad tracks, they soon have to face a harsh reality. Screened at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, where filmmaker Diego Quemada-Díez won the A Certain Talent award for his directing work and the ensemble cast.
