PALM SPRINGS CULTURAL CENTER-ALONE WITH HER DREAMS

Filmed on the rugged and beautiful Sicilian coast, ALONE WITH HER DREAMS explores the universally timely themes of family separation, emigration, generational conflicts and feminine repression. Set in the late 1960’s, Lucia is left behind with her grandmother while her parents emigrate to France to find work. Lucia is greatly distressed that she must stay in Italy and struggles to learn her role in the tiny, traditional village under the watchful guidance of her stern grandmother, who Lucia struggles to understand. Unbeknownst to the young girl, her grandmother hides a hideous family secret which endangers Lucia’s well-being.
