Ramon, a young Mexican boy, tries to cross the US-border for the fifth time but fails. He decides to immigrate to Germany on the advice of a friend who has an aunt in Wiesbaden and who has promised to help Ramón relocate. Once there, he discovers that the aunt has mysteriously vanished from the address he’s been given. The mystery looms even larger due to his inability to speak or understand German. Penniless and communicating only through pantomime, he encounters kindly Ruth, an 80-year-old retiree, when he helps her carry her groceries home to her apartment in a building occupied by pensioners.
This Spanish-language, Mexican/German co-production, was a box-office sensation in Mexico in 2014 directed by Ramirez-Suarez who lives in Germany.
