Winner of the Chicago International Film Festival’s 2017 Gold Hugo Award, Documentary Competition.

Synopsis

Rocío and her big brother Alejandro came to Mexico from Honduras with their mom and younger siblings looking for a better life. When their mother ends up in prison, tensions between the two older children bubble to the surface as they struggle to keep their family afloat. As Rocio touchingly confesses, "I love my brother will all of my heart, but I hate him, too." This top documentary prize-winner roots its timely story about dislocation and migration in a deeply intimate and emotional domestic drama.
