Sin Nombre (2009) International Trailer


The International Trailer for Sin Nombre.

Sin Nombre tells the dramatic story of Sayra (Paulina Gaitan), a teenager living in poverty stricken Honduras and desperately seeking a brighter future. A reunion with her long-estranged father gives Sayra no other option but to emigrate with him to Mexico with the chance of going onto the United States, where her father now has a new family.

Meanwhile, Casper (Edgar Flores) is a teenager living in Tapachula, Mexico, and facing an uncertain future. As a member of the Mara Salvatrucha gang brotherhood, he has just brought to the Mara a new recruit - 12-year-old ‘Smiley’.

While Smiley quickly takes to gang life, Casper tries to protect his relationship with girlfriend Martha Marlene (Diana García), keeping their love a secret from the Mara. But when Martha encounters Tapachula’s Mara leader Lil’ Mago (Tenoch Huerta Mejía), she is brutally taken from Casper forever.

Concurrently, Sayra and her relatives manage to cross over into Mexico. There, they join other immigrants waiting at the Tapachula train yards. When a States-bound freight train arrives one night, they successfully rush to board – riding on the roof, rather than in the cars – as does Lil’ Mago, who has commandeered Casper and Smiley along to rob immigrants.

When day breaks, Lil’ Mago makes his move and Casper in turn makes a fateful decision. Casper must now navigate the psychological gauntlet of his violent existence and the physical one of the unforgiving Mara, but Sayra bravely allies herself with him as the train journeys through the Mexican countryside towards the hope of new lives.
