Determined to provide his wife with a better life, Macario (Rogelio T. Ramos) leaves his Mexican village to find work in the United States. This drama follows the hopeful young man and a friend as they head north on a journey that ultimately takes a tragic turn. Infused with magical realism, director Pablo Veliz's moving tale of faith, resolve and loss is based in part on true events that occurred in 2003 in Victoria, Texas.

The attempt to marry naturalistic filmmaking to opera -- much of the narrative unrolls in song -- is misguided and unconvincing.
Inspired by a real incident in which 19 illegal immigrants died a similar death, La Tragedia de Macario takes one of the great issues of our time and makes it human in scale.
