Out On Digital 13 May


In Mexico, 350,000 people have been killed over the last 15 years by armed perpetrators, 30,000 of which are under 18. A Wolfpack Called Ernesto is a travel exploration to the bowels of the most fragile link on the chain - kids. The film follows the paths of the youths collectively named 'Ernesto' - victims as well as sicarios - who in a certain moment of their lives had access to a gun, used it to kill, and soon became a part of the many pieces of a crime organization.
