The Pink Lagoon

Two distant siblings, two different worlds. A journey of familial reconnection, positivity, and valuing the different ways of seeing the world. Mariana is a fiercely independent, twentysomething young woman with Down’s syndrome who loves ballet, art, and living her best life. When invited to participate in a publicly funded dance exhibition in the city of Merida, Yucatan, she visits uptight, estranged brother Arturo with her free-spirited ballet teacher in tow to ask for some assistance getting there. Arturo, initially put out and resistant to doing anything much to help that would distract him from his own life and high-strung fiancée, can’t help but to be swept up by his sister’s profound dignity, sincerity for the world in general, and true passion for dance.
