Women who live in Ciudad Juarez organise safe havens for children in some of the most violent neighborhoods in Mexico. There, Diana, Joseph and Gael seek out the freedom that they once had on the streets, and try to heal the wounds that the violence of organised crime has inflicted on them. “Drawings Against Bullets” is a loving depiction of the search for peace in Mexico.
