Cuando un trabajador indocumentado en el último piso del World Trade Center desaparece en la trágica mañana del 11 de septiembre de 2001, su hijo hace un difícil viaje desde México a la ciudad de Nueva York en busca de su padre, y se encuentra cara a cara con las realidades de lo que significa ser un inmigrante en Estados Unidos. Ryan Guzman y Edward James Olmos protagonizan esta película conmovedora y socialmente relevante.

MEMBER SCREENING: On the morning of September 11th, 2001, Fernando and his family in Mexico watch the collapse of the World Trade Center in shock: Balthazar, the patriarch of the family, is an undocumented worker at the restaurant on the top floor. With no word from him for two weeks, the family begins the grieving process until Fernando's mother catches a glimpse of Balthazar on the news one day. Determined to find out what happened to his father, Fernando begins a perilous journey to New York City, coming face-to-face with the harsh realities of being an immigrant in America. As he searches for answers, Fernando discovers romance and humanity in some unlikely places. Michael D. Olmos' Windows on the World is a stirring examination of social themes that are particularly relevant today, made all the more compelling by the captivating performances of Ryan Guzman (Everybody Wants Some!!, Papi Chulo) as Fernando and esteemed actor Edward James Olmos as Balthazar.

EXPECTED GUESTS: Actors Edward James Olmos and Jai Wilson, Writer-Producer Robert Mailer Anderson
