La pelicula trata de dos migrantes mexicanos, un joven purgando una cadena perpetua en prisión y el cineasta que fue su intérprete judicial, quienes forman un lazo de amistad gracias a la vida y el cine.

Film synopsis: During his day job as a Spanish criminal interpreter in a small town in California, filmmaker Rodrigo Reyes (499) met a young man named Sansón, an undocumented Mexican immigrant who was sentenced to life in prison without parole. With no permission to interview him, Sansón and Reyes worked together over a decade, using hundreds of letters as inspiration for recreations of Sansón’s childhood—featuring members of Sansón’s own family.

The result is a vibrant portrait of a friendship navigating immigration and the depths of the criminal justice system and pushing the boundaries of cinematic imagination to rescue a young migrant’s story from oblivion.
