SYNOPSIS

Tres niños indígenas huérfanos por el desplazamiento forzado de sus comunidades, deberán reconectarse con sus ancestros protectores, el bosque y con sus raíces, para sobrevivir en este mundo lleno de injusticia. 

SINOPSIS

In different parts of Honduras, a Garífuna girl, a Lenca boy and a Tolupán boy lose their respective families in circumstances of strong impunity and injustice, and are respectively expelled from their lands, and it is precisely this tragedy that unites them to start their personal fight against a world of adults that insists on destroying their dreams and endangering their lives.

MOTIVATION

Honduras is a country that loses its children, that abandons them; It is a territory with a strong smell of orphanhood. In it, we often feel unprotected, like adrift, with no one in control of this country ship and make us feel that we are not going to shipwreck. Unfortunately, our society and our government constantly help the environment to persist that feeling of being about to capsize. This makes us always be on the defensive, in a sick state of vigilance and paranoia that ends up reinforcing the strong root of violence of our idiosyncrasy. LOST CHILDREN talks about all this, seen from the perspective of three orphans who must tirelessly fight to survive in a cruel, decadent and sick system in which they are the most vulnerable people. Ultimately, this is a story about how Honduras fails its children and condemns its own future with this.
