DON'T TELL ANYONE (No Le Digas a Nadie) is a film about courage, facing insurmountable obstacles and the determination to fight for justice. The film follows Angy Rivera's remarkable journey from poverty in rural Colombia to the front page of The New York Times. Since the age of 4, Rivera has lived in the United States with a secret that threatens to upend her life: She is undocumented.
In an environment where silence is often seen as necessary for survival, Rivera steps out of the shadows to share her parallel journey of being undocumented and sexually abused, an ordeal all too common in her community. Now 24 and facing an uncertain future, Rivera becomes an activist for undocumented youth with a popular advice blog "Ask Angy" and a YouTube channel boasting more than 27,000 views. Watch the trailer.
