For his second film Gustavo Ramos Perales (“El chata”) tackles the one side of the immigration story that is hardly covered by English or Spanish language newscasts: the migration by sea in flimsy boats of hundreds of Dominicans through the treacherous Mona Channel to reach Puerto Rico and, eventually, the United States. Escaping from an abusive relationship, Toña arrives in Puerto Rico illegally to build a new life. She meets Gregorio, an exiled Cuban doctor who is trapped in Puerto Rico with no legal options to regulate his immigration status. An accident will trigger a relationship on which they both depend to move forward.

Actress Judith Rodríguez is scheduled to attend both screenings.
