La Perdida: A story about finding yourself while getting lost

La Perdida


Carla, an American estranged from her Mexican father, heads to Mexico City with a backpack, a few hundred dollars, and a head full of preconceptions. Her intense desire to connect with Mexico and her unwillingness to see the impact of her own history on her understanding combine to turn an innocent journey down a dark path.

A story about the youthful desire to live an authentic life and the consequences of trusting easy answers, La Perdida—at once grounded in the particulars of life in Mexico and resonantly universal—is a story about finding yourself by getting lost.
