A young mother seeks to find peace in her small town when her son shows signs of extra sensory perception and the skeptical townspeople begin to act uncharacteristically suspicious in director Juan Antonio de la Riva's thought-provoking, magic realist drama. Juanito is a young boy who lives with his mother Hilaria in the remote Mexican town of Santa Cruz de la Montana. When the young boy begins to display signs of mysterious supernatural abilities and the frightened citizens turn on the child and his concerned mother, Hilaria's burgeoning romance with town chef Albino offers newfound hope that the family will persist even in the most trying of times.
