Here’s the official synopsis:
“A haunting horror fairytale set against the backdrop of Mexico’s devastating drug wars, Tigers Are Not Afraid follows a group of orphaned children armed with three magical wishes, running from the ghosts that haunt them and the cartel that murdered their parents. Filmmaker Issa López creates a world that recalls the early films of Guillermo del Toro, imbued with her own gritty urban spin on magical realism to conjure a wholly unique experience that audiences will not soon forget.”
Estrella, age 11, is granted three magical wishes after a tragic event at her school — only to find out that her fate is about to take an even worse turn. It takes place during Mexico’s violent, bloody drug war. Estrella’s mother is taken by the cartels, and in trying to find her Mom, she meets a boy named Shine, who wears a tiger mask. He lives on the street and leads a gang of fellow orphans, helping each other survive the constant violence around them while chasing the ghosts of their parents.
Tigers Are Not Afraid, will be available for all Shudder members to stream in the U.S., Canada, UK, and Ireland from tomorrow, Sept. 12th.
