Also called 'Ya No Estoy Aquí', IMDb reveals the plots kicks off when "After a misunderstanding with a local cartel, a young man is forced to leave behind his family, friends, and everything he loves." Rotten Tomatoes elaborates further, describing "In the mountains of Monterrey, Mexico, a small street gang named Los Terkos spend their days listening to slowed down cumbia music and attending dance parties, showing off their outfits, hairstyles and gang alliances. These different bands of disaffected youth refer to themselves as Kolombianos, combining the Cholo culture with Colombian music. Ulises Samperio the leader of Los Terkos, tries to protect his friends from the nefarious elements of a quickly evolving drug/political war, but after a misunderstanding with a local cartel, he is forced to leave for Jackson Heights, Queens, a diverse immigrant community in New York City. Ulises tries to assimilate, but when he learns that his gang and the whole Kolombia culture is under threat, he questions his place in America and longs to return home.
The film is written and directed by Fernando Frías de la Parra known for his work in films such as 'Rezeta' (2012), and 'Calentamiento Local' (2008).
