The Awakening of the Ants

Directed by Antonella Sudasassi

Cast: Daniela Valenciano, Leynar Gómez, Isabella Moscoso, Avril Alpízar

Isabel, a thoughtful, demure young housewife, works as a seamstress in a postcard-perfect Costa Rican seaside village. She is a good mother, wife and daughter-in-law, and she teaches those roles and expectations her daughters. However, when she is pressured by her intrusive and loudly opinionated in-laws to have another baby, a boy, even as her already cramped household struggles to stay afloat, Isa finds herself suffocated. Desperate to escape and reaching her breaking point, Isa wakes up to the possibilities of a life lived on her own terms.
