Retornados is a short documentary about three families who have been forced to return to Honduras, and the extremely violent conditions they fled. Moving through the restless streets of the unstable capital city, and into the drama and determination of each family’s story, the film explores the experience of being returned to a familiar, yet increasingly unsafe situation.

Retornados is based on the memories and current experiences of people who are trapped in dangerous situations. Their stories are unique to them, but represent the Central American experience for too many.
