To Life (El brindis)

In this lighthearted tale about family, memory and love, Emilia a young photographer, struggles to find meaning in her life. Though she lives a lonely life in Mexico, she reluctantly travels to Chile to visit her octogenarian estranged father Isidoro who is preparing for his Bar Mitzvah. There she must deal with her extended paternal family, her unexplored Jewish roots, and her overall feelings of loneliness and resentment. While Isidoro is trying to make up for lost time with Emilia, she is learning that her roots run deeper than she had ever imagined when she meets Rabbi David. Together they learn to practice life’s most “simple yet difficult” task: how to enjoy it.
