"The trailer for the movie, 'América', adapted from my novel, América's Dream is now available. The film will be in theaters in March 2011"
America, a 30-year-old mother who lives in a remote Caribbean village, suffers the hardest hit when her abusive lover takes their daughter from her. Fury and fear push her to run away.
In her new life as a nanny in New York City, with support from relatives and other Latinas, America finds comfort and hope. When she dares to dream of a life without violence, reality hunts her down. Will she survive to tell her story?
An Isla Films release directed by Sonia Fritz (THE KISS YOU GAVE ME), América stars Lymari Nadal, Yancey Arias, Thalia Rothenberg, and Edward James Olmos.
