A Summer Job

Post Production


Set in the border town of Nogales, we follow Charo, a young skateboarder, as he becomes entangled in an underground trafficking network. As he dives deeper into this underworld he soon finds that the living and the dead both need help crossing to the other side. Along his journey he negotiates the perils of life when caught between adolescence and adulthood, Mexican and American identities, and the fears of one’s past amidst the desire of imagined futures.
