This film will be viewable for 24 hours from showtime above.
When Walter (Ntare Guma Mbaho Mwine, Treme) left his war-ravaged home in Angola for the prospect of a better life in the U.S., he promised to bring his wife and daughter over to join him. Now, after 17 years, the three of them are finally reunited in his adopted home of New York City. His baby girl, Sylvia, is now a teenager who loves to dance and text on her cellphone. His wife, Esther, has become devoutly religious. The adjustment of being together after all this time is not easy for any of them. Walter, who earns a living driving a yellow cab, still has feelings for a woman he met during their time apart. Esther fervently prays to God to restore her marriage. Sylvia is homesick and finds it hard to fit in at her new school. The film doesn’t shy away from the difficulties of finding a way forward when so much has changed, but it also reminds us of the bonds of a family, that neither time nor distance can break.
