Set in a small community on Mexico’s spectacular Pacific Coast, this enchanting new feature from veteran writer-director María Novaro—whose Danzón delighted Miami Film Festival audiences back in 1992—follows siblings Dylan and Andrea as they and their new friends set out, map in hand, to seize a pirate’s treasure that’s been hiding for centuries. What they’ll find, however, will prove to be far more priceless than any old fabled booty.

Tesoros is a spirited tale of high adventure and discovery that promises a cache of cinematic riches for the whole family to enjoy.
