Sin Nombre tells the story of Sayra (Paulina Gaitan), a teenager living in Honduras.  She decides to emigrat to the U.S. with her father through Mexico. Meanwhile, Casper is a teenager living in Tapachula, Mexico, and facing an uncertain future. A member of the Mara Salvatrucha gang brotherhood, he has just brought to the Mara a new recruit, 12-year-old Smiley. Sayra and Casper meet on a train one violent night and the story follows their dangerous crossing and unlikely alliance.
