A family’s story. America’s story. This short was adapted for the screen by Troy from an anonymous student essay written by a young immigrant whose parents struggled to build a life for her and her siblings cleaning office buildings in the city. Her parents dream was to one day become U.S. citizens. The story’s third act takes place at the annual Atlanta Beltline Lantern Parade — which is magic every year.
Featuring: Javier Vazquez Jr., Vanessa Williams, and Denise Santos.
