IN A FOREIGN AND UNKNOWN LAND

SYNOPSIS

A family who has recently moved from Mexico to Utah following a job opportunity struggles to adapt to their new circumstances. At the end of the day, they come together to share a burnt meal, but each is lost in their own reflections on the difficult day they've had. After a tense silence and display of emotions, Carolina suggests that instead of eating the burnt dinner, they all go out for pizza. The family ultimately realizes that vulnerability will allow them to shoulder their burdens together instead of alone.
