Gerardo, Omar and Santos are teenagers living in low-income housing in Tijuana.  In addition to their great friendship, they share a deep emptiness at home; their mothers work long days in textile factories.  In their own personal ways, the boys cope with monotony, loneliness, and the desire to thrive in a hostile environment.  Upside Down Home explores their lives, hopes and frustrations, and inevitably raises questions about the nature of "development" and "progress" in large contemporary cities.  Theirs is a story about their youthful hopes and their disconnected realities of hardship.

Mexico, 81 minutes, in Spanish with English subtitles.
