Runaways in love: a stylish, funny and intense feature from Mexico.

Disaffected rich kid Román and rebel girl Maru fall in love through mutual rejection of the system. Time to steal a car and flee to freedom! Or at least use that as a cover for an entirely different plan… When their socially mismatched parents club together to try to track things down, however, their attempts to live ungoverned come under threat…
