Marc Raymond Wilkins / CH, 2020 / 99 min.

Even in the dark days of Trump, many South Americans opted for an illegal existence in the US. Like Raffaella, mother to twins Paul and Tito, who tries to build a better life in New York: but pays a high price. Marc Wilkins based his first feature-length fiction film on Arnon Grunberg’s Book Week Book from 1998.
