Every day since 1995, a group of women stand at the tracks near the Mexican town of La Patrona waiting for La Bestia — the train used by thousands of migrants from Mexico and beyond to get to the US border. Deemed “Las Patronas,” the women toss water and homemade food to the weary travelers.

First time director Arturo González Villaseñor chronicles these compassionate women’s motivations, sympathies, and their own personal struggles as they commit to helping those dreaming of a better life.
