In Isaac Gómez's La Ruta, we are told the heartbreaking story of a border town, a bus route and the women of Ciudad Juárez. Inspired by real testimonies from women affected by the ongoing femicides along the border, La Ruta weaves together beautiful storytelling and music in a celebration of the resilience of Mexican women in the wake of tremendous loss.
