It’s the end of spring in Boston, Massachusetts. With summer approaching, 16 year-old América has two issues, or so she thinks. She hates school and her aunt Carolinas alcoholic husband, Joey. She passes the days shoplifting, hanging out with her friends and trying to avoid Joey. But after a life-changing event, América, whose Spanish is limited, is sent to Buenos Aires, Argentina to live with her reclusive and anti-American grandmother, Lucía América Campos. In Argentina, América struggles to find her place. An entertaining and thought-provoking coming of age tale from a decisive vantage point of the Latino American experience. Directed by Cristina Kotz Cornejo, 2008. In English and Spanish with English subtitles.
