Eleven-year-old Diego is forced to spend three months with his grandfather Francisco, who lives in a small farm in the Venezuelan Andes. With no access to internet, no electricity, no video games and no phone, Diego will learn about the joys of reading, community and young love underneath the shade of a strange, blue apple tree.

Alternate showing: Tuesday, April 23rd – 6:00 pm at UIC’s COMRB, 909 S. Wolcott Moss Auditorium, Room 1020
