Meant to Be

“Guero” crossed Mexico’s border to reach Houston, Texas. He planned a better future, but he chose a bad path. Easy money selling drugs and carrying guns lead him to high-risk relationships and he almost lost his life. Rescued by his family from the streets, Guero decided to change it all, but a huge tragedy occurred and once again he was left in God’s hands. Cuadriplegic, he asks himself what reason he could have for being alive without being able to move. The power of love, association, resilience and destiny will teach Guero he could do a unique project within the US to help thousands. Guero can now understand why his suffering was Meant To Be.
