In a timeless Mexico, where women disappear, Huck (Matilde Hernández), a little girl, wears a mask to hide her gender. Her father (acclaimed Sound Artist Rogelio Sosa) is a tortured addict who takes care of a baseball field where the narcos gather to play. One fateful day, things get out of hand and violence is unchained. Together with her friends –a group of lost children who have the power to camouflage themselves in the desert–, Huck prepares to defeat the local drug lord.

Julio Hernández Cordón builds particular settings where rottenness and cruelty can only be undermined with the wit and innocence of a little girl. With a background where the existence of women is an act of resistance, this overwhelming film offers a story filled with contrasts and poetic nods. The strong visual and sound character in this film reaffirms Hernández Cordón as one of the most creative and exciting filmmakers of the moment.
