Twelve-year-old Andrea, six-year-old Dylan, and toddler Lucas move with their family to Barra de Potosí, on Mexico’s Pacific Coast. They quickly make friends with the local children, who immediately enjoy the company of the newcomers from the city. When one child is convinced that he has seen the ghost of explorer Sir Francis Drake, the whole group sets out on an adventure, searching for a long-lost treasure from the 16th century.

This delicate tale by Mexican maestro María Novaro places children center stage and depicts the magic and wonder of childhood and the empowerment young people experience when they are given autonomy. Idyllic and full of hope, Treasures exquisitely captures the limitless possibility that youth represents.
