This short film mainly has two lessons to offer: one in stealing, and one in getting away. It also features the perspective of a kid who learns an abrupt lesson about family and change.

This one saddened me, probably because of its all-too-real look of what happens at the Mexico-USA border.

*Note: This film has actual English dialogue (with no Spanish subtitles).

I started this website as a complement to my studies in the Spanish language, but honestly, it just gave me an excuse to watch lots of great short films (like the ones in my author's picks section).
