Andres, a naif from Oaxaca, attempts to cross the border into the United States but his plans leave him stranded in the unforgiving desert outside of Tijuana. When he stumbles onto a job at a sleepy grocery store while scouting out future opportunities to cross, he finds the kindness of strangers and faces difficult decisions in gauging the wisest remedy to his hardscrabble life. With a masterful final sequence that will linger with audiences long after credits roll, Pérezcano’s beautifully restrained narrative contemplates seemingly familiar issues with a novel thoughtfulness and humanity.
