In their glowing review of the film, The Hollywood Reporter calls "Birds of Passage “an indigenous The Godfather, a beautifully crafted, slow-burn crime saga steeped in native traditions.”
Torn between his desire to become a powerful man and his duty to uphold his culture’s values, Rapayet (José Acosta) enters the drug trafficking business in the 1970s and finds quick success despite his tribe’s matriarch Ursula’s (Carmiña Martínez) disapproval. Ignoring ancient omens, Rapayet and his family get caught up in a conflict where honor is the highest currency and debts are paid with blood.
