Crossing Borders

September 17 at 8:00 PM

Spain 1960, the dawn of the country's economic development. Industrial 'reorganization' means that many workers have lost their jobs and are forced to emigrate. Martin and Marcos decide to emigrate to Switzerland, pretending they are tourists to get past the border police. There, they must deal with the struggle of adapting to a new culture, the differences between Spain and Switzerland in the mid twentieth century. The family is forced to overcome many of their biases and cultural prejudices to survive in their new country.
