She plans to get to the United States and dreams about being a great singer; he commits all the required atrocities to be accepted by the gang: la Mara Salvatrucha. Sabina and Jovany crashed with the most adverse conditions at the border like white slavery, the Mexican and American migratory agents Burrona and Patrick, the brothel matron Doña Lita, Don Nico the Mexican Consul in Tecún Umán, the drug trafficking networks, the army and la Mara Salvatrucha.

This is a good movie . The interpretation on Sabina by the Colombian actress , is superb. But the part of the movie related to the M 13 gangs is almost a copy of another movie "SIN NOMBRE". Also the writer or the producers, add to the movie a plot that depict the abuse of immigrants in Mexico, like a responsibility and committed by the US government and officers. In the other hand depict the abuse of immigrants from Mexican authorities, like something that has more to do with cultural behavior than a humans right violations. This is a sad twist on the movie to portray a bias in the real Mexican inferno of immigrants in their journey to USA.
