"One of the great dark fantasy horror movies from the last decade."–Guillermo del Toro.

This startling, phantasmagoric film from acclaimed Mexican filmmaker Issa López is a haunting horror fairytale set against the backdrop of Mexico’s devastating drug wars.

Ten-year old Estrella (Lara) becomes a guiding force in a group of orphaned children armed with three magical wishes, running from the ghosts that haunt them and the cartel that murdered their parents.

López puts her own gritty urban spin on magical realism to conjure a wholly unique experience that audiences will not soon forget.
