A boy needs a change of life looking for himself, travels abroad for an amazing journey
5 March 2012 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

An American boy feels his life is empty, when he meets a Mexican guy that shows him the love for life, for the small things of it and inculcated his love for Mexican music, food and country. Leading him to a journey across the boarder where he learns to love by himself all those little things that his old friend had showed him. He will meet people across the border that might share his dreams for a meaningful life. The movie comes out from the conventional by showing a real Mexico, showing the culture as it is, dignifying to the Mexican people. Shows the relationships and the journey to self discovery, all these involved in a romantic atmosphere. You can expect the unexpected and leave with a good feeling. Amazing music and photography.
