Magdalena (Mercedes Hernandez) has lost contact with her son after he left home with a friend from their town of Guanajuato to cross the border into the U.S., hopeful to find work. Desperate to know whether or not he’s alive—she embarks on an increasingly dangerous journey to discover the truth. At the same time, a young man named Miguel (David Illescas) has returned to Mexico after being deported from the U.S., and eventually their paths converge. First-time director Fernanda Valadez has crafted a lyrical, suspenseful slow burn, equally constructed of moments of beauty and horror. Winner of the World Cinema Dramatic Audience and Screenplay Awards at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival. (Mexico/Spain, Spanish subtitles)
