Hatzin is barely a teenager when he is called to retrieve the remains of his missing father found in a mass grave. Leaving Mexico City, where he lives with his grandmother, the boy reaches the place where his father worked in the northern part of the country. On arrival, he meets Mario who looks very much like his late parent. Thus he gets to know the reality of migrant and illegal workers and begins to doubt what really happened to his father, whom he seems to know so little.

Lorenzo Vigas (Mérida, Venezuela, 1967) studied film at New York University. In 2004, he directed the short movie Los elefantes nunca olvidan, presented at Cannes Festival’s Semaine de la Critique. Vigas made his feature film debut with Desde allà, written with Guillermo Arriaga and winner of the Golden Lion at Venice in 2015.
