Plot Summary
Seventeen-year-old Colombian Maria (Catalina Sandino Moreno) is desperate: pregnant and with a large family to care for, she's forced to leave a demanding job after an altercation with her boss. Needing work as soon as possible, she encounters charming Franklin (John Álex Toro), who offers her a dangerous job as a drug mule. With cocaine pellets in her stomach, Maria flies to New York for the drug drop-off, but finds her new line of work may be far riskier than it initially seemed.

    Marston builds incredible tension. But it's the human drama etched on Moreno's young, weary face that gives Maria its potent punch. show more

    A revelatory independent film whose moments of incredible sadness are offset by the same state of grace that blesses its astonishing title character. show more
