Honduran teenager Sabina Rivas (Greisy Mena) dreams of becoming a famous singer. She wants to travel to the United States in hope of realising her dream, and to distance herself from her boyfriend turned vicious gang member Jovany (Fernando Moreno). However, to do so she must travel across Mexico, with its brothels, ruthless gangs, drug trafficking and corrupt migratory agents.

At the Mexican-Guatemalan border Sabina and Jovany, who has committed all necessary atrocities required to be accepted by the Mara Salvatrucha gang, meet again. Sabina’s lack of any documents, passport or visa are preventing her from crossing, and she is forced to work for a brothel run by Doña Lita (Angelina Peláez), who does not want her to leave. The only person who can help her escape this life is her best customer and confessor Mexican Consul Don Nico (Miguel Flores), who infatuated by her beauty and innocence does not want her to leave either. However, Sabina believes that if she does everything she is told to do, she will eventually end up with that coveted Mexican visa.

Winner of Best Supporting Actress (Angeline Pelaez), Best Art Direction and Best Special Effects at the Ariel Awards in Mexico in 2013, this dramatic story on the darker side of Mexico is adapted from Rafael Ramirez Heredia’s novel La Mara.
