Best Feature! New York Latino Film Festival
Jorge is a cantankerous widower living a lonely life in the Mexican desert. One day he receives a call from his estranged daughter, an undocumented immigrant in the US, who is in desperate need of his help. Faced with the possibility of losing her three children to the NY foster care system, she decides to send them to live with Jorge while she fights for her American dream, and a road to citizenship. Paper Boats reminds us of the unconditional bond of family, and how the innocence of children can touch the most hardened of hearts.
