Storyline

In the Mexican town of Santa Clara, lives Salma, a 16 year-old orphan who never got to meet her biological parents. The only story she's been told her whole life is that they abandoned her. Salma has spent most of her life dedicated to searching out clues for her parents' identity and their whereabouts with little to no luck, until she discovers a special book that is filled with stories of Santa Clara and the history of their people. With this new special book, Salma sets off onto an adventure with her two brave and heart-warming foster brothers, Jorge and Pedro, to find the missing links to her family's heritage in hopes to finally get to meet her long lost parents.

Trivia

The film was scheduled to be released in 2017. But due to the release of Pixar's Coco (2017) it was shelved for two years, as the Mexican Animation film had a similar plot and could not compete with Disney's Marketing campaign. See more »

Good movie with a so so script
3 November 2019 | by jploxSee all my reviews

I'm a Mexican national and watching a movie with my 4 year old was a really good idea for a Saturday afternoon.

However, there was an excess of words that tried to be funny and made it difficult to comprehend for my daughter.

I will recommend to see it and watch with young eyes and remember being a kid with all your family elder traditions, that's priceless.

Don't try to compare it with Coco, it's a different setting and less a Disney movie. It feels more authentic and original.

Definitely there were things that could be donde differently, but my understanding is that the movie took a really long time to be made because of funds and legal issues.

I will definitely buy this movie and have it for my children to watch It again.
