A confrontation between creation and intolerance
Five Mexican children are chasing their dreams in hopes that they will find their way to where superstars are made: the bright lights of Mexico City. As we witness the sacrifices, highs, lows, and dead-ends of their perilous journey, director Carlos Carrera presents the raw, unvarnished truth of the pursuit of fame and fortune through a child’s eyes.
Ana is a curious girl who escapes from a mental institution in search of her father —so they can save her mother. With the help of the strange, delightful, fantastical beings she meets there, she embarks on a journey full of thrilling and touching adventures.
The Hero a love story that ends before it begins.
