(World Premiere – Discovery)
**BASED ON A TRUE STORY**
Starring Paola Mendoza, Sebastian Villada Lopez, Laura Montana Cortez, Sarita Choudhury
Written and Directed by Gloria La Morte and Paola Mendoza
Mariana (Paola Mendoza) is determined to keep her family together. Her children, Gabriel (Sebastian Villada Lopez), 10, and Andrea (Laura Montana Cortez), 6, have grown up in Colombia without their father. He immigrated to the United States years earlier in order to make a better life for his family. Finally after many years of separation the family is reunited in New York City.
After coming home late from work one night Antonio announces he has found work in Miami and will be moving there alone. He will send for the family when he is settled.
Days go by and Mariana does not hear from him. Worried and desperate, she goes to her only friend’s home only to find out Antonio is not coming back. With no more than fifty dollars to her name, Mariana must find work.
Mariana makes homemade empanadas (meat patties), which she tries to sell on the streets, however this quickly fails. With all her options closing in on her, Mariana turns to the city’s trash collecting cans in order to put food on the table. With Gabriel and Andrea working beside her collecting cans, the family finds the most stability they have known since their arrival. And it is during these challenging moments that the family triumphs.
In entre nos, Mariana, Gabriel and Andrea take us on a remarkable journey where we bear witness to a family’s commitment to survival and their unrelenting hope for the American dream...one soda can at a time.
