Synopsis by Mark Deming
A handful of immigrants make a bittersweet pilgrimage back to the land of their birth in this comedy drama. Ten people who have little in common beyond the fact they were all originally from Puerto Rico and now live in New York discover they've won a contest giving them each a free, all-expenses paid vacation -- in Puerto Rico. While some are eager to visit the place they once called home, others are nervous about what they will find and wary about confronting the people and things they left behind. The travelers include Carlotta, who has become a successful businesswoman and philanthropist; Daisy and Baldo, who would like to return to Puerto Rico when they retire, but aren't sure they want to be so far from their daughter, who loves New York City; Chris, who has thoroughly assimilated into Anglo culture (including an Anglo wife) and isn't sure he wants to see Puerto Rico again; Rodolfo, who still pines for the love he left behind; young and attractive Sara; and Matilde and Clotilde, two elderly sisters who have been all but forgotten by their family.
