Diego, a stilt walker in a Mexican tourist town, returns home after his 93-year-old grandmother, América, falls out of bed. Reunited with his circus performer brothers, Rodrigo and Bruno, the three young men try to rehabilitate their grandmother and free their father after he was unfairly jailed for elder neglect. Diego is a dreamer who sees poetry and purpose in this crisis. He believes América, despite her immobility and advanced dementia, fell willfully, to reunite the separated family. But Diego’s dream of family cohesion is challenged when the brothers clash over money, communication, and the weight of caring for América full-time. This remarkably intimate documentary brings us all a little closer to what it takes to care for our loved ones. Subtitles
