Little Huck lives with her drug-addicted father in a remote part of Mexico. Cartels force the locals to regularly give up young women and girls. The father tries to protect his daughter and disguise her as a boy by making her wear a mask. But in the end, it's up to Huck to learn how to take care of herself. This Mexican drama relies on a stark visual side and straightforward storytelling unburdened by superfluous dialogues and background music.
