I find Bosa appealing because of its overall theme; many teenagers might find this film engaging for this reason as well. The protagonist, Lucas, sets out on an daring adventure from Spain to Morroco to meet up with his best friend, but instead meets a young man by the name of Ibrahim who is trying to jump the Morrocan border to Spain in order to attain a better way of life for himself. The storyline id about fighting for the rights to attain one's freedom. Many of the scenes are quite abrupt and thus a bit confusing about what's going on. The viewer might have to watch this twice to really get a grasp of the overall situations. The contemporary clothing works with this present-day film. The locations of Spain and Morocco are integral to the plot line of Lucas trying to meet up with his friend. The Spanish background music enhances the short to make it more enticing for the viewer. The male characters are Lucas and Ibrahim. Lucas stands out the most because of his strong will to get to Morocco even if by dangerous methods such as holding onto the pipes below a truck. The message is about supporting those looking to better their situations in life and finding their true home. I learned a little about the struggle of Ibrahim and those that have similar struggles from his country and why he needs to cross the border when Lucas meets up Ibrahim and learns more of his issues. I give this 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 13 to 18, plus adults. Note that the scene where Lucas latches onto the underside of the truck is a concern, due to possible emulation. Hence, the reason for the age recommendation. Reviewed by Kimberly M., KIDS FIRST! Adult juror.
When Lucas finds out that Driss, his best friend, has been sent back to Morocco with his uncle, decides to start a crazy adventure and go to look for him in a forbidden trip to the other side of the strait in the opposite direction that the illegal trip it is done. In Morocco he'll meet Ibrahim, a subsaharan that is waiting for an opportunity to cross the fence in the Spanish/Moroccan border, and a another close friendship will be born between them.
