People eating roaches. Families broken apart. Children assuming adults' problems and solving them as if they were adults... how is this world coming to an end?
4 August 2001 | by MemoGameroSee all my reviews

Perhaps childhood's innocence is not lost yet, the real problem could be that today's so knowledgeable children just can't distinguish between good and evil. Elisa is the typical child from a Mexican medium class family (for whom a brand new car could mean their whole life savings), who decides to help their parents on their struggle with a car debt with the local bank.

Elisa can't get too much from her parents: her dad is focused on his debt, her mother hardly crosses any word with her. It's when she meets Miguel, a young boy who worships his felon brother `El Rey' (`The King'), when she decides to strike back and gets to mastermind a bank's robbery. I tell no more. Watch it and I promise you will enjoy it. Despite Sherlyn was so young when she acted on this movie, this masterpiece of Mexican movie making will always make us remember her as one of the most promising actresses of all times.
