When two young teenagers lose their mother to gang violence, they have to flee the only home they’ve ever known. A journalist reluctantly agrees to take them on the long drive to Mexico City, where they will catch a flight to Vancouver. On the road, sharing their remembered loss and encountering current fears, their wounds begin to heal and an unlikely new family emerges. Featuring the real siblings upon whom this moving story is based, the film accomplishes a rare and satisfying fusion between fiction and reality in a work that is surprisingly uplifting.
