Life's roads are not what we expect.

Lucia (Teresa Ruiz) is a Mexican girl from a poor town who sets her mind to cross the border to The United States to find her son's father who she hasn't heard from in years. On the road she meets Fernanda (Cassandra Ciangherotti), a high middle class girl that has unresolved issues with her ex-boyfriend and is willing to travel hundreds of miles to resolve them once and for all. But the road have a few surprises for them as they will discover each other and themselves in ways that none of them thought possible.

This movie works incredibly because the two main actresses are very good and very believable. You can identify with what these girls are going thru which is at the end happiness as they perceived it to be with their men.

The twists are very good, and there's a little bit of comedy and drama, but most of all realism. Realism because you see the two sides of the coin when it comes to economic background that at the end plays no part in real happiness.

Viaje Redondo is a comedy that dares to go beyond the standards and talk about failed marriages, failed relationship, the lengths people will go to cross the border, and much more.

Very well directed, photographed, acted this is truly a Mexican Film Gem you cannot miss.
