Movie Info

Estrella is 10 years old, and three wishes: the first, is that her missing mother returns. And it is fulfilled; but she is dead and follows her everywhere. Terrade, Estrella tries to escape, joining a band of children orphaned by violence. He soon learns that in reality the dead are never left behind, and that when one lives in the midst of brutality and violence, though desires never go forth as the heart wishes, only warriors survive.

López's fable has already drawn comparisons to Pan's Labyrinth, but has a phantasmagoric energy and modern urgency all its own.

A scary yet sometimes fanciful story of a little girl...like a dirtied-up Guillermo del Toro flick.

The balance between the genre elements and gritty drama nets López her best film to date. She's created a wholly unique and deeply moving film that takes its cues from real life fears.
