Synopsis

CO-PRESENTED WITH ÍCARO FILM FESTIVAL NY, A BRANCH OF FESTIVAL ÍCARO

NY PREMIERE

In 1991, Guatemala is at war. The army and guerrilla groups battle each other in the mountains, but these are distant news for Daniel and his friends. They just want to have fun and travel with baseball bats in the car, but their destination is not a game, it’s a hunt. The teenage squad roams the city looking for lower-class young men with indigenous features, who dress differently and listen to hip hop music. They are the enemy, whom they refer to as “breaks”. Daniel and his friends do not know why they do what they do; they just know that they are “anti-breaks”.

Español

Recorren la ciudad buscando jóvenes de clase baja y rasgos indígenas a quienes denominan “breaks”. No saben por qué lo hacen, solo saben que son anti-breaks.
