‘Laugh and the World Laughs with You’ is a short and intimate portrait of Angel, a 17-year-old homeless boy who sleeps under a sweet stall in Mexico City and survives by earning a few pesos performing as a clown at traffic lights.

The film reveals the child behind the clown's make up.
It is a story of resilience, determination and survival exposing the systemic problem of 15,000 children who fled violence and sexual abuse at home, only to become under age prostitutes and drug addicts on the streets of Mexico City.
