film synopsis

In a haze of anger and grief following the death of her mother, young Maria (Jembie Almazan) leaves the Philippines to start a new life with her grandmother in Montreal, but drifts down a dangerous, self-destructive path. In Mexico, David (Bernardo Garnica Cruz) leaves his rural village to find work in the unforgiving slums of Mexico City, but chances across an unexpected camaraderie from a gay punk. And in the seaport city of Buenaventura, fisherman Alex (Jonathan Diaz Angulo) is determined to support his family and get our from under the eye of a vicious local crime syndicate.

Named after the Yucatán village considered the geographic center of the American continent, this visually stunning sophomore film from Colombian writer/director Juan Andrés Arango is an unabashedly honest account of the universal struggle of migrants to find love and acceptance. Equal parts grit and beauty, this eagerly anticipated follow-up to his celebrated debut La Playa DC weaves a rich, engaging tapestry of three troubled souls searching to find their way home again.
