A quietly told, sad-but-real story
13 September 2019 | by eospauldingSee all my reviews

So much to wrap your head around in this presentation of a poor Honduran girl who finds a way to leave home and seek her mother in the U.S. Terrifically shot in Central America and Mexico, as Sulem Calderon (the title character) seeks a new home.

The first half of the film plays like a travelogue, then events turn dark. And the viewer gets a hard-hitting message about life at, and across, the border. Politicians playing wordsmanship with the current border crisis should be required to see this before talking about, or spending our tax dollars, on, walls and resettlement camps.
