Algún lugar - Film Screening and Discussion

About to graduate from high school, Oliver, Moises, and Hemingway go on an emotional journey through the Dominican Republic in search of their life calling. Oliver needs to arrive at all costs in the remote town of Pedernales to say goodbye to his high school sweetheart before she moves away to New York. Hemingway seeks to escape his oppressive family and become a real writer in a society that despises authors. Moises is documenting the trip as a last tribute to his love of photography before enrolling in a career in civil engineering. A series of adventures triggered by strangers they meet on the road unexpectedly change their travel plans, causing the journey that began as a celebration of their friendship to end as a final farewell.
