Under the shadow of drug and human trafficking, girlhood reveries tenderly bloom in Tatiana Huezo’s sensorial narrative debut. Produced by the team behind Roma, this profound tale of love and survival juxtaposes the lushness of rural Mexico with the cartel violence looming over crimson poppy fields.
Three young girls live in a rural village in Guerrero dominated by the violent presence of the local drug trade and the threat of human trafficking. Trained by their mothers to flee at any moment and forced into extreme measures to evade capture, they must learn to navigate their harsh surroundings.
