Intent on starting a new life in America, a brother and sister escape persecution in their native Guatemala, journeying across Mexico all the way to the U.S. border. Providing an authenticity and human focus (with magic realist flourishes) rarely seen in depictions of the American immigrant experi- ence, this is one of the seminal American indies of the 1980s.
