Pedro Daniel López, Tzotzil-prolific documentarian from the State of Chiapas, Mexico, presents his first feature documentary dealing with the struggles of young indigenous people who emigrate from traditional rural homes to the city.  A rare and fascinating look at a culture often represented by outsiders, this film presents a vibrant Native American experience in its own voice.
