Sarah, a young woman raised in Canada by her Uruguayan immigrant parents, leaves the cold Montreal winter to seek out her roots, after her father’s untimely death. In Uruguay, a country she has never been to, Sarah is taken in by her maternal grandmother Magda, who is not overjoyed to meet Sarah. The mysteries of her parents’ past becomes a riddle that Sarah must solve as she comes to terms with the deep differences between the village of her childhood fantasies and the reality of a place that seems cemented in a past that no longer exists.

Roads in February tenderly observes a girl’s struggles to understand old resentments and hidden secrets in her family history in the heat of the Uruguayan summer. This Canadian-Urugayan production is one of the finest debuts of the year in both countries.
