Sara, a Guatemalan teenager, chops her hair off and disguises herself as a boy. She’s joined by her friends Juan and Samuel on a thrilling and brutal journey north, hopping freight trains heading for Los Angeles. A blossoming attraction to a Tzotzil Indian boy named Chauk she meets on the way leads to anger and bitterness, but as the group faces life-and-death challenges from bandits and corrupt law enforcement they learn crucial life lessons about friendship and loyalty.

In his ambitious debut feature, director Diego Quemada-Diez brings a gritty, near-documentary realism and social conscience to a story about the excitement and horror young Central American migrants regularly face. Quemada-Diez - a camera assistant to Ken Loach on films like Carla’s Song and Land and Freedom - captures his characters’ youthful sense of adventure as they pursue a dream that may not be all that it seems (the title translates as “The Gilded Cage”). The remarkable cast of untrained actors won a special prize in the Un Certain Regard section of the Cannes Film Festival.

“A very substantial movie, with great compassion and urgency.”
- Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
