A portrait of a young woman travelling across Latin America, taking back her power as she breaks away from a violent life and begins to start again’ – Inti Rowland (Writer/Director)
Having co-written and performed the songs that feature in the film, this project brings together for the first time, Inti’s work in both the mediums he has given his life to – film and music. Through this unique approach to storytelling, he unites the emotional language of these two incredibly powerful art forms.

A debut – created by musician and filmmaker Inti Rowland.
