In October 2018, 7000 people from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador fled the rampant gang-crime and the precarious economic situation in their home countries. They joined together in a massive trek with one goal: to cross Mexico and enter the USA. Exodus introduces the people of the first caravan of Central Americans who left everything behind but their faith in God to start a dangerous and thousands-of-kilometers-long journey into the unknown. The lawyer and human-rights activist Dr. Edgardo Buscaglia offers insights to this event and examines the political structures of the states of Central America with regard to the exodus of the population.

A puma stalks Pueblo Ranquel, an indigenous community in the middle of the desert. Uriel (11) and Isaías (13) are friends. They feed the dogs, and the teenagers take them to hunt. But a conflict appears between them because Isaías wants to hunt the puma, however the older ones don’t allow him because he is too young. Luana (12) arrives to the community and she also generates a silent rivalry between them. Finally, Isaías is accepted among the teenagers. In one of the hunting outputs, they wound the animal without killing it. Now, they just have to follow the blood trail and finish it. Growing up is going hunting, but Uriel feels himself more attached to the wounded animal and awaits the storm, so the water can erase its footprints.
