Monos (2019)

In a remote mountaintop setting somewhere in Latin America, a rebel group of teenage commandos bearing ​noms de guerre​ like Rambo, Smurf, Bigfoot, Wolf and Boom-Boom perform military training exercises while watching over a prisoner (Julianne Nicholson) and a conscripted milk cow for a shadowy force known only as ​The Organization​. After an ambush drives the squadron into the jungle, fracturing their intricate bond, the mission begins to collapse.

Director Alejandro Landes (​Porfirio,​ ​Cocalero)​ examines the chaos and fog of war from the unique perspective of adolescence, banding together a diverse young cast of seasoned professionals (including​ Hannah Montana’​s Moisés Arias) and untrained neophytes thrust into an unforgiving, irrational and often surreal environment where anything can happen – even peace.
