Sex & Nudity

  • None of the following is presented in a sexual way:
  • A brief glimpse at a breast in the background in the scene at the Migrant Shelter. Blink and you'll miss it.
  • Several men are seen with shirts off at various points in the film.
  • Some low-cut shirts on women.

Violence & Gore

  • The film begins with a prolonged shot of a drowned body floating upriver. It is recovered by police.
  • A teen's calloused foot is treated by social workers. Non-graphic.
  • We see the prolonged image of a body after it was ran over by a train. The description (all torn up, "an arm, a leg, a head") is much more disturbing than what is actually visible in the magazine photo.
  • We are told that two people on top of a train hit the top of a tunnel, fell off the train, and died. Not seen.

Profanity

  • The film is mostly in Spanish, though profanity can still be read in the English subtitles.
  • Some uses of whore.
  • A drugged teen and his interviewer use fuck around 10 times in one scene.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • One teen is a drug addict and is seen after sniffing glue.
  • Another teen smokes constantly throughout the film.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The subject of the film, children traveling alone and taking the dangerous, illegal road to immigration, can be very emotional.
  • Many of the children presented in the film have emotional backstories.
  • An extended sequence focuses on the deaths that have been associated with child immigration. One body that is found is said to be in such a state that it is not able to be presented to the parents (not seen). An emotional funeral service follows.
  • At one point, the fate of young people is left ambiguous when they don't meet the film crew at a checkpoint.
  • The film does not end happily, nor is it sad. Overall, it is very emotional due to its subject matter.
  • Suggested MPAA rating: Rated R for language, disturbing images, and drug content.
