This award-winning drama takes us into the lives of three girls in a Mexican town whose strong friendship helps them survive the drug cartels.
Ana (Marya Membreno) and her two best friends wear boyish haircuts and hide underground. They also dress up as women when no one is watching. In their impenetrable universe, magic and job abound, even as their mothers train them to flee from those who would turn them into slaves or ghosts. One day, one of the girls doesn't make it to her hideout in time.
