An astonishingly tender observational film about three brothers caring for their 93-year-old grandmother, América. What initially seems to be a narrative about one of the brothers just passing the time by the beach suddenly shifts when their dad is charged with neglecting América. In the intensely improvised circumstances that follow there is fascinating, uncomfortable insight into a grey areas and moral dilemmas of care.With beautiful cinematography and a gentle pace, Erick Stoll and Chase Whiteside’s film explores the remarkable dedication of these young men, their perceptions of life’s priorities, and América’s vibrant personality.
