DIRECTOR: Erick Stoll & Chase Whiteside

WITH: Diego Alvarez Serrano, Rodrigo Alvarez Serrano, Bruno Alvarez Serrano, Cristina Hernández

Shot over three years in southwest Mexico, the film follows Diego as he reunites with his brothers Rodrigo and Bruno to care for their 93-year-old grandmother América. Their father, who had been her carer, was jailed accused of elder neglect after América fell from her bed. While they work to free him, the young brothers must learn to provide daily care for their grandmother. But as the brothers clash over money and the distribution of labour, difficult questions come to the fore – who decides what becomes of América and how long will they put their lives on hold to care for her?
