Chuj Boys of Summer

'Chuj Boys of Summer' is the story of a group of indigenous Guatemalans living in a small town in the Rocky Mountains. It centers on two men: one a new arrival and the other preparing to leave, and details the gentle handoff of place and purpose between the two. Taking place mostly in Chuj, a Mayan language, it is a tale about hope, home, and the love between men.
