Ashes of Light

by Marco Antonio Rodriguez
directed by Victoria Pérez

After a self-imposed five-year absence, a man returns home to attend his father’s funeral. Over the course of two evenings, mother and son, two estranged generations of Dominicans living in the Upper West Side of Manhattan, attempt to rekindle the love and appreciation for each other and their roots; but unexpectedly revealed intimate and taboo secrets threaten to destroy an already thin bond.
