For those who aspire to the American Dream, it rarely turns out quite as they imagined. This intriguing drama explores the bitter-sweet experience of a young Romanian single mother desperate to secure that all-important Green Card. While working as a nurse on a temporary US visa, Mara is offered marriage by one of her patients, but is this really the answer to her prayers? Acutely observed and unsentimental, Ioana Uricaru’s debut feature hints at the complex motives we rarely acknowledge, even to ourselves.
