Tuesday, March 28 at 8:30pm | Nilo is a buttoned-up writer living an orderly life with her husband and teen daughter Laura. Maya is her irresponsible, tempestuous, and unsuccessful sister. When Maya takes Laura in Nilo’s car to Portugal to visit the sisters’ dying mother, Nilo begrudgingly tags along. Lovisa Sirén’s feature debut is a spirited, messy road trip, replete with traffic violations, pitstops, road food, laughter, tears, and truth, with powerhouse performances from Bahar Pars (A MAN CALLED OVE) as Nilo, and newcomer Nadja Rosenberg as Maya.
