Mourning her father, twentysomething Sarah returns to her home country of Uruguay, hoping to reconcile past and present. There she finds her paternal grandmother, the solitary Doña Magda, who had so hoped her prodigal son would return . . . The clash of cultures, generations and aspirations shapes this intimate, bittersweet tale where each character must undergo transformation. Unfolding at the languorous pace of its sundrenched setting, and featuring a remarkable performance from Uruguayan stage legend Gloria Demassi, Katherine Jerkovic’s first full-length drama, simple yet potent, is a nuanced exploration of nostalgia.
