Review
17-year-old Maria has a dead end job packing flowers in a small Colombian town, she's pretty and pregnant but her boyfriend is nobody special. Life, though, may be taking a turn for the better when she gets offered a job that involves travel - being a drug mule. After swallowing 60-odd rubber pellets packed with heroin, she and 3 other girls set off on the hazardous route to New York. Tagged as being "based on 1,000 true stories", this is an eye-opening glimpse into her background and prospects, filmed non-judgementally with compassion and serenity.
