Storyline

Ivan, Julia and Kike were born and grew up in Culebra where they shared a close friendship. Ivan and Julia are a couple but Kike is in love with Julia. They are separated when Ivan is drafted and sent to Vietnam. When Ivan is reported MIA for several years, Julia becomes closer with Kike. Ivan returns, takes Julia to New York and marries her, leaving Kike behind. Much later, Ivan is diagnosed with cancer, and this time it is he who decides to return to Culebra with Julia. With her help, he begins to participate in Culebra's social needs. He even ventures in a small boat and that is when he stumbles on Cayo, a small island closeby. Here he finds peace of mind, and the island has a healing effect on him. When federal authorities try to keep Ivan away from Cayo, they find themselves face to face with a community that will defend Ivan's need to visit the island.

This movie was incredible. Even though I'm from Puerto Rico, I don't usually watch movies from Puerto Rico, but it was great. I saw it twice this weekend. The movie was not filmed in Vieques, though. It was filmed in Culebra, an island belonging to Puerto Rico. This island's beaches are considered among the most beautiful in the world, and this is pretty obvious when you see the movie. I really do hope they nominate it (it is still not nominated) for best foreign film and that it wins because it is excellent. I'm not a very big fan of Roselyn Sanchez, but with this movie I realized she is very talented and without her acting, the movie would not be as good as it is. I recommend this movie to everyone, no matter what their nationality is.
