Film Synopsis:

An old neglected ballroom, an abandoned hotel, improvised shelters where the stories of children displaced by violence in Tierra Caliente, Guerrero, join together to shake up a society blinded by indifference. Their crayons tell stories like those of thousands of children who through dreams and fantasies claim their right to childhood and happiness in a country fraught with violence.

Sinopsis de la película:

Un viejo salón de fiestas, un hotel abandonado, improvisados refugios donde las historias de niños desplazados por la violencia en Tierra Caliente, Guerrero, se entrelazan para estremecer a una sociedad cegada por la indiferencia. Sus crayolas nos relatan historias como la de miles de niños que a través de sueños y fantasías hacen valer su derecho a la infancia y la felicidad en un país convulsionado por la violencia.
