Cruz Sanchez, the proud patriarch of an indigenous Rarámuri clan, flees from his home high in the Mexican Sierras, forced off his tribe’s ancestral land by drug cartels and the violence they bring with them. Filmmaker Teresa Camou Guerrero, meticulously employs intimate interviews with Sanchez kin, striking cinematography, and stunning pen-and-ink animation to create an evocative portrait of a resilient family’s gradual triumph over the horrors of death and injustice.
