Road to Delicias

Directed by JL Ruiz

Mexico | 12 minutes | 2021


Santiago is a soldier with orders to kill. Hermilda is a child fleeing for her life. This is how their stories come together.

In the middle of the Mexican revolution, Santiago has orders to assassinate an enemy soldier along with his entire family. Hermilda, a 12-year-old girl flees with her younger brother from the massacre that struck their home. Santiago pursues the infants who escaped his attack, while Hermilda crosses the Mexican mountains seeking to survive her attackers. A tale of violence and persecution that takes us through two stories linked by the violent narrative of a country in which time seems to stand still.
