Description: A pair of young Mexican boys ditch school in favor of catching an afternoon matinee, only to find themselves on an adventure wild enough to spawn a movie of its own in this richly textured children's adventure from director Jaime Humberto Hermosillo. Though they wanted to see a movie, these two hooky-playing grade-schoolers are promptly busted and nearly expelled. Though a ride home with a local truck driver seems to signal the end of their afternoon excursion, the stakes are soon raised when a gang of thieves hijack the truck and whisk the kids away on a breathless journey that's well worth the price of admission.~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide
