An epic love story spanning decades is sparked by a chance encounter between two men in provincial Mexico. Based on a true story, Heidi Ewing directs a film about two of her friends and their love story, both following them in real life and using actors to portray them in narrative moments. The film tells of ambition and societal pressure that propel an aspiring chef to leave his soulmate and make the treacherous journey to New York, where life will never be the same. “First-time feature director Heidi Ewing blends a beautiful narrative with real-life subjects to capture a story that is alluring an emotionally rich.” —Kiko Martinez, San Antonio
