In a Drug War-ravaged corner of Mexico, young Estrella (Paola Lara) fled classroom violence to come home and find her mother missing. The pieces of chalk that her teacher said granted wishes might provide a supernatural safe harbor when she, and the young orphans she falls in with, run afoul of a ruthless human trafficking ring. Issa López's haunting intersection of neorealism and mystical realism co-stars Tenoch Huerta, Juan Ramón López, Ianis Guerrero. 83 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: Spanish; Subtitles. English. In Spanish with English subtitles.
