It’s family vacation time for Buenos Aires psychiatrist couple Lucrecia and Pedro and their teenage kids Julian and Florencia, and that means setting out on a road trip to the Brazilian resort of Florianópolis. Lucrecia and Pedro are contemplating a drastic change in their relationship, but not before going back to a place where they once experienced a romantic getaway–just at a time when their own offspring are ready to explore adult relationships of their own.
Florianopolis Dream is a comic tale of first love, past lovers, fateful encounters and fleeting joys. Filmmaker Ana Katz demonstrates a powerful confidence in portraying the complexities of female experiences and family dynamics with empathy, care and warmth.
