Summary
Beginning in the remote mountain jungles of Guatemala, awash with the lushness of nature and the rainbow colors of the Mayans, this highly-acclaimed drama about a teenage Mayan brother and sister seeking a better life. When their father is killed by government soldiers and their mother taken away, they set out for the "promised land" to the north: El Norte. The perilous journey ending in Los Angeles is related in a blend of drama and dream imagery
