    • Synopsis
    • Villa Nueva (The New City), located in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, is the most dangerous neighborhood on the planet. Villa Nueva's children make their way to school each day like anywhere else, avoiding dead bodies left from last night. This true story is told through the eyes of one 15 year boy.

      Recently a wave of children have begun fleeing the violence in Honduras and walking the thousand miles to the US border. Too young to work, these children are not even economic refugees, they are just searching for safety.

      Villa Nueva is one of the Honduran neighborhoods they are fleeing from. This film is a true story told from the eyes of a 15 year old living there and seeking a better life.
