Evaristo and Luis Antonio - indigenous brothers from the SierraTarahumara in northwest Mexico - have just graduated from boarding elementary school. Evaristo desires to continue his education, leading a bicultural life, where the Tarahumara, or Raramuri as they call themselves, have the opportunity to keep learning to speak, read and write in Spanish, the Mexican official language. Meanwhile Luis Antonio "Tony" is very happy to be done with school.

Cochochi: The simple life by Sandra Peredo
5 April 2008 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

Cochochi is a glimpse into rural existence in the mountains of northwestern Mexico. Transportation is by donkey, broken-down bicycle or beat-up truck. The local radio station relays personal messages. When a message is aired that a relative needs medicine, Evaristo and Tony are sent to deliver it. Reluctant to travel the Tarahumara Sierra on foot, the boys steal their grandfather's only workhorse, ride happily away and get lost. Then they lose the horse and while searching for it also lose each other in the mist. This film is not for everyone. It moves slowly, the actors are non-professionals, some scenes seem gratuitous, a documentary-like look at how it is in these parts. But even so Cochochi is unforgettable. It touches the heart.
