A young girl walks into a derelict public bathroom marked “Damas” in someone's handwriting. She looks to herself in the mirror for courage and begins to cut her hair, tape over her breasts and put a baseball cap on. A young boy leaves his aluminum shack of a home with nothing but a backpack. He goes to a garbage dump site, walks over to his friend who works there, and the two of them walk off together. Not a word has been spoken so far in Diego Quemada-Diez's "La Jaula De Oro" ("The Golden Cage") but the level of investment is already palpable. A sure sign of capable filmmaking if there ever was one, Diez makes his film feature debut as a director but is no stranger to the filmmaking process.
