synopsis

How long is three minutes? That all depends on who you ask. Directed by acclaimed Mexican filmmaker Everardo González, A 3 Minute Hug offers a poignant look into a profound source of pain — not being able to embrace your loved ones. This Netflix Original documentary short produced by No Ficción follows what transpires over the course of a few special minutes — when families, some separated for over a decade, were able to reunite at the U.S.-Mexico border.
