WHAT’S YOUR STORY?

COMING SOON…

Title: Hurricane Maria & The Ame-Rican Dream

Category: Documentary Feature Film


Imagine living through a direct hit from a Category 5 hurricane – an event that will change your life forever. You will have to leave everything you know behind to start over in a new and unfamiliar place; What will you do? What challenges will you face? How will you survive and provide for your family?

Prepare to embark on a journey with one Puerto Rican family, who shares their personal story of survival and triumph after enduring Hurricane Maria, a storm that devastated the island of Puerto Rico in 2017 and displaced 135,000+ residents into the continental U.S.. We join Alex, Leyra and their daughters, Girellys and Adriana Diaz, over a two-year period, from the moment Maria makes landfall on the island and through the chaotic aftermath left by the storm, which ultimately leads to the family’s difficult decision to leave their home in Puerto Rico and move to Florida. Through the eyes of the Diaz family, we learn the struggles of assimilating to life in the continental U.S. when obstacles, such as language barriers and cultural differences, stand in the way. What does the idea of the “American Dream ” look like for someone in their circumstances and what does it take to pursue it? Is the American Dream even attainable for Puerto Ricans – and other Latin American migrants, alike?
