What is the plot of Lost in the Night?

The movie is about a young man named Emiliano (Garca Trevio) who lives in a small mining town where unfairness and inequality are common.

As shown in the trailer, Emiliano’s mother went missing three years ago. She was an activist who was against an international plan that could have destroyed her town. When Emiliano realized that no one was looking for her or was going to help her, he decided to look for her on his own.
