Synopsis

Following her father’s death, Sarah packs up her backpack and travels all the way from wintry Montreal to the Uruguayan village that was her father’s birthplace to reunite with her estranged grandmother Magda. Her wish to reconnect with her past and bridge the gap that separates her from her grandmother, who has never forgiven her son for leaving her, will not be easy. Featuring two beautifully calibrated performances from Arlen Aguayo Stewart as Sarah and theater veteran Gloria Demassi as Magda, Jerkovic’s opera prima is a moving coming-of-age story.

Tras la muerte de su padre, Sarah empaca su mochila y viaja desde Montreal hacia la aldea uruguaya dónde nació su padre para reunirse con su abuela Magda. Su deseo de reconectar con el pasado y cerrar la brecha que la separa de su abuela, quien nunca ha perdonado a su hijo por abandonarla, no será fácil. Con las excepcionales interpretaciones de Arlen Aguayo Stewart como Sarah y la veterana de teatro Gloria Demassi como Magda, la ópera prima de Jerkovic es una conmovedora historia sobre la madurez.
