Sin Nombre

Seeking the promise of America, a beautiful young woman, Sayra (Paulina Gaitan), joins her father on an odyssey to cross the gauntlet of the Latin American countryside. Along the way, she crosses paths with a teenaged Mexican gang member, El Casper (Edgar Flores), who is maneuvering to outrun his violent past. Together they have to rely on faith, trust and street smarts if they are to survive their increasingly perilous journey towards the hope of new lives. Harrowing and vivid, this acclaimed debut feature from Cary Fukunaga co-stars Kristyan Ferrer, Diana Garcia and Hector Jimenez.
