Like an open secret, the situation in the border cities in Tamaulipas and forced disappearance are the order. It is an issue that everyone knows but, unless it is a big public case, it is not talked about or taken into account in the public or political agenda.

A reflection of this can be clearly seen in the film. “No particular signs”which perfectly describes the situation that exists, from wanting to live the American dream, to the pain of families when they do not know about their loved ones who left in search of a new opportunity outside the country.

‘Without particular signs’, is a feature film by Fernanda Valadez, the filmmaker debuted with 15 Ariel nominations, a record for a film whose intention is to expose the brutality of the violence in mexico that “It is not a red note, but a social crisis”; she puts the audience in the shoes of the mother of a disappeared person.
