In El Salvador, gang violence has overrun the country, disproportionately targeting children and teenagers, and turning it into ‘The Murder Capital of the World’. The emergency medical unit, Los Commandos de Salvamento is one of the few institutions standing up to the gangs’ reign of terror, and is a place of refuge and community for young people. 16 year old Mimi is a dedicated Commando caught in the violence. When her friend and fellow Commando, 12 year old Erick Beltran, is gunned down while serving, she faces pressure to leave El Salvador and Los Commandos, and head north for a better life.
