Drugs and violence make Mexico a dangerous place where people are treated as commodities. The collateral damage can be found in the orphans the murdered leave behind. One of these unlucky souls is Estrella who tries, using one of three wishes, to bring her mother back from the dead. What she ends up conjuring up is so frightening that she runs to other children for protection. When a friend disappears, everyone decides to free him and don’t forget, Estrella still has two wishes left!
This is a delicately told and staged horror film that has even the likes of Guillermo Del Toro excited. This screen wonder from Mexico is an enchanting and emotional cinematic experience.
