Description

Mexican brothers Rodriguez, Bruno, and Diego are unexpectedly tasked with caring for their 93-year-old grandmother América after their father is wrongly jailed for neglect. Easygoing and humorous, the brothers, who work as street entertainers on the side, carefully tend to their grandmother despite growing familial tensions and disagreements. Encountering the harsh realities and meditative tenderness of homecare, an intergenerational bond is formed as the brothers come face-to-face with the rewarding complexities of family.
