A charming Mexican adventure about three mismatched brothers and their 93-year-old grandmother in a film about family ties, which will evoke both laughter and tears.
Filmmakers: Erick Stoll & Chase Whiteside
Diego, a young circus artist, must return home and reunite with his brothers after their ninety-three-year-old grandmother, América, falls from her bed, causing their father to be jailed under accusation of elder neglect. Diego is a dreamer who sees poetry and purpose in this tragedy. He believes América, despite her immobility and advanced dementia, fell wilfully, to bring the separated family back together.
"Blows up an intimate family portrait on to a large, cinematic canvas." ★★★★ - The Guardian
