"Esperanza" is a poignant film about two women with the same name. Each woman represents a different segment of society and the conditions and choices in which they lead their lives. The escalating social problems in Mexico serve as the backdrop for this film and the theme of the film's message. "Esperanza" in Spanish signifies hope and the film deals with each woman's hope for freedom and deliverance from life's social injustices. The film contains some violence and erotic scenes and is intended for mature audiences only.
Oxxo Films has commenced the development of its next project, "Alma" which is the next installment of the collection. A novelty of the collection is that each individual film title is styled after a Latina's name. "With the success of each film in the collection, we increase our film making efforts to keep our current audience entertained and to attract more viewers.
