Synopsis

Each year, hundreds of thousands of people flee the violence in the Northern Triangle countries. When families first arrive in Mexico to seek safety, they are faced with many challenges. Among them, the lack of access to basic rights. This film portrays the story of Mario, a 17 year old El Salvadorian boy, who after an extremely difficult and exhausting journey to fight for his dignity, was able to rebuild his life after successfully obtaining the refugee status in Mexico.
