About the film:

Winner of both prizes awarded in the Next category of the 2020 Sundance Film Festival. Based on a true story, ambition and societal pressure propel an aspiring chef to leave his soulmate in Mexico and make the treacherous journey to New York, where life will never be the same.

About the filmmaker:

Making her first foray into narrative filmmaking, documentary helmer Heidi Ewing began this project as a vérité portrait of her real-life subjects, Ivan and Gerardo, but cast actors to play the two men in reenactments of their early life — both as children and later, at the moment they met and fell in love.
