Shot over three years, this affectionate film follows Diego reuniting with his brothers to care for their charismatic 93-year-old grandmother América. Their father was the primary caregiver, until he was jailed when América fell from her bed and neighbours accused him of elder neglect. While they work to free him, the young brothers must learn
to provide daily care for their grandmother. But as the brothers clash over money and the distribution of labour, difficult questions take the foreground: who decides what becomes of América, and how long will they put their lives on hold to care for her? América is an uplifting and soulful story told with charm and humour, offering an honest look into the complexities of familial love.
