From its opening scene on an overcast day at a Pennsylvania bus auction, it’s hard to imagine where Mark Kendall’s feature debut will go. But from the moment it starts, this illuminating documentary about the perils of everyday life as a bus driver in Guatemala takes its audience on a spellbinding ride that transcends gang warfare and suffering.

Tracking an ordinary American school bus across the border, through Mexico, and into Guatemala, where it is painstakingly transformed into a vibrant camioneta, Kendall focuses on the personal stories of the artists and drivers whose lives and fates depend on this unique mode of transport.
