La Yuma- Cine+Mas SF Latino Film Fest
This is the story of Yuma a strong-willed and rebellious girl from the poor neighborhoods of Managua who dreams of being a boxer.
Managua, today. Yuma wants to be a boxer. In her poor neighborhood, gangs fight for control of the street. In her home, lovelessness is the name of the game. She dreams of the ring, energy and agile feet and hands. They are also her only options.
A street, a theft, a chance encounter: Yuma meets Ernesto, a journalism student from the other side of the city. Despite their differences, they fall in love, attracted to each other by their shared desire to find their own space in the world.
Yuma's story is a slice of life deeply rooted in Nicaragua, today. A daily Nicaragua and unknown, which contrasts with the image of the country that is channeled abroad, essentially related to natural disasters, revolutions and wars.
