Mary is in a business trip and during a storm her car cracks up in the middle of the highway. She is picked up by a mental hospital's bus that takes her there but she cannot get out because everyone thinks she is mental sick.
Authentic and committed, moving and stormy drama of street kids from Mexico City. Wonderful adaptation of successful play about street kids who have more trouble with corrupt cops, than with dirty and heavy work.

Adopted girl grows up and becomes a conflicted woman with a decadent lifestyle. Following a stable and spiritually oriented man in a pilgrimage to the rain forest will, perhaps, put an end to the troubles she has been through. Hard drama. Una nina adoptada crece y se convierte en una mujer conflictuada con un estilo de vida decadente. Un hombre estable y espiritual la lleva en peregrinaje a la selva tropical donde, talvez, pueda encontrar la paz que nunca tuvo. Fuerte drama.
A teenage girl in a dysfunctional relationship with her rich stepmother but with a fat wallet of credit cards, gets in a fix and falls in with a criminal who says he can sort her. The inevitable descent into sex and drugs is lightly handled, using some highly original cuts and edits. Eventually, the heroine sets out into the desert and the action hints at psychedelia as her lover makes a parallel journey. Eventually --- well, I won't go into that. The end is a little contrived, but the last frame offers ultimate relief. I went all the way with this picaresque picture, rooting for the realistic heroine all the way. Great writing and directing from Angel Flores Torres, one to watch, definitely.
