Ivan, a 14-year old boy, lives with his uncle Jaime, a mediocre dealer of used car parts. Both of them dream with a better life and are stashing away their money in order to emigrate illegally to Chicago shortly.
Careering through the streets of Mexico City, this expressive urban drama revolves around the underworld market for stolen car parts. With a charismatic duo at its center, and vivid cinematography by Javier Morón, Used Parts makes for a muscular feature debut from writer-director Aarón Fernández.
