Drama, about a bird selling boy in Mexico
Great tender movie about the relationship of a boy of poor origins and his grandfather. The little boy helps his grandfather set traps for birds in the woods, to then later sell them in the streets of a small town in Mexico. The story however, takes a sharp turn, when his grandfather is imprisoned for allegedly stealing from a local woman. The boy is sent to an orphanarium and gets to talk to his grandpa by the window that faces his cell with the street, those times when he manages to escape from his own. His grandfather, now knowing what it feels like to be deprived from his freedom, asks his grandson to let all their birds free, and never set traps for them again. The kid will face a tough reality only aided by the new friends he has made along the way of his new ordeal. Loved this movie since I was 8. Very sad, but nice story.
