What a great and intense drama in the vein of SIN NOMBRE. The acting is powerful and the storytelling understands to create some deep emotions. The pacing of the movie is very slow after all, but this is a real strength of the movie. The audience gets the time to find his way in the sad world of the main character. Greisy Mena delivers a great and natural performance - I think she deserve an Oscar for that. The influence of the MS 13, the most dangerous Latino gang of the world, is also a big topic of the movie. When you get the chance to see this movie, do it without doubt. I love this movie - it's a masterpiece of his own. Everybody how is interest about the topic of gang
