NorteBook - 2012 | Spanish
This is a story of three destinies separated by time and space but connected through violence, banishment, creativity, and madness; three misplaced lives at the crossing of worlds and borders that characterize our era. In a small town in the north of Mexico, Jesus leaves school and joins a gang. To impress his new comrades, he stabs a prostitute, thus beginning his criminal career that will cause him to become one of the most hunted psychopaths by the FBI. In California, Martin, an illegal immigrant, is admitted to a psychiatric hospital where he will become one of the great painters of the twentieth century. And in Texas, Michelle works as a waitress while trying to follow her vocation of cartoonist. At the same time, her teacher, Fabian, with whom she had an affair, dreams of writing his masterpiece. One day the two meet by chance, and resume their relationship that is passionate, but doomed to failure.
