WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Hurricane Andrew is quickly approaching Miami, and three generations of women prepare for the storm while the matriarch, Valeria, battles her quickly advancing Alzheimer's disease. Held captive to her debilitating condition, Valeria's memories and inner world are revealed in a journey both tragic and dreamlike. Thirty years later, the family is again threatened by rising waters and an impending disaster as they face each other in the wake of an unforgivable mistake. With allusions to Shakespeare's The Tempest, El Huracán is a magical exploration of one family's multigenerational battle with acceptance and forgiveness.
