Storyline

Two women, a voyage in two voices, which, like reflections of a single echo, convey what fear means in the life of a human being. Highways, landscapes, gazes. Mexico from north to south in an era when violence has taken control of our lives, our desires and our dreams. An emotional and evocative journey, steeped not only in loss and pain, but also love, dignity and resistance.

Not really a movie
19 April 2018 | by mat123-1See all my reviews

Well the story telling is compelling, and most because those are real facts and because you can dig from their voices how the two women really endured a hard time being alive on Earth in a deep corrupted justice system. However this is not a movie, more like a very sad podcast, with random images of places, people, houses, streets and roads. Nobody ever speaks alive, there are only voiceover narratives. Although we can make connections between what is on the screen and what is heard, one can just hear the "movie". On the other hand, the anonymity of the characters add to the atmosphere of fear, pain and injustice. Disturbing and raw, but very true.
