Valeria is a magician who is losing her memory. Ximena, her daughter, is losing sleep. Miranda, Ximena’s daughter, is just plain lost. Set against the backdrops of Florida hurricanes 27 years apart, EL HURACÁN explores the inheritance of memory through three generations of mothers and daughters. Told with a magical sense of wonder, love, and care, EL HURACÁN explores the depths of loss, legacy, and the power of family in the face of unstoppable chaos.

Gabriel has been incarcerated for 16 years after murdering a member of a rival street gang. Anna is trying to find a new rhythm to her life after the sudden death of her son, a police officer, in the line of duty. Their experiences lead them to form radically different views of crime and punishment, yet when their paths meet under unlikely circumstances, Anna and Gabriel begin a tentative and touching relationship founded on their common humanity. Told through interweaving monologues, Alessandro Camon's stirring TIME ALONE is a profound meditation on the effects of isolation and the flaws of our criminal justice system, asking us to engage our hearts and minds in considering how we treat society’s outsiders.
