Drawn to the north, a young farmer from Oaxaca in southern Mexico tries repeatedly to cross the border into the United States. Andrés is a gentle soul who has given himself up to his dream. When he is pushed back to Tijuana, he is taken in by two women, Cata and Ela, who are doing their own endless waiting on the line that divides the two countries.
