    An intimate portrait of a community that lives on the streets of Zona Norte in Tijuana, one of the city’s most violent neighborhoods, located just next to the border with the United States. Alex, Hugo, Alan and Anthony reflect on their past and the relationships with their estranged families in an effort to reconnect with them while facing a daily struggle against substance use disorder, health issues, police brutality and discrimination. They converge in Zona Norte as outcasts trying to survive the hostilities of a society submerged in cartel wars and a sanitary crisis, so close to their dreams of another life.
