Armed with a Winchester rifle, two Morrocan boys set out to look after their
family's herd of goats. In the silent echoes of the desert, they decide to test
the rifle… but the bullet goes farther than they thought it would.
In an instant, the lives of four separate groups of strangers on three
different continents collide. Caught up in the rising tide of an accident that
escalates beyond anyone's control are a vacationing American couple (Brad Pitt,
Cate Blanchett), a rebellious deaf Japanese teenager and her father, and a
Mexican nanny who, without permission, takes two American children across the
border. None of these strangers will ever meet; in spite of the sudden, unlikely
connection between them, they will all remain isolated due to their own
inability to communicate meaningfully with anyone around them.
From Alejandro González Iñárritu comes a film that is at once intimate and
epic, shot in four countries, cast with actors and non-actors, and concludes his
trilogy that started with "Amores Perros" and "21 Grams."
