The Perez Family - Movie Synopsis & Plot
No se puede vivir sin amor.
One cannot live without love. It can be dreamed, but never planned. For 20 years, Juan Paul Perez has patiently endured a prison nightmare by imagining the day he could kiss his wife Carmela again. When freedom finally becomes a reality, he looks across a glistening ocean and sees a chance to rebuild his life and family. He's had enough of life's surprises. Juan Raul is ready for the future he's dreamed about for so long.
Then he meets Dottie.
From Mira Nair, the acclaimed director of the spicy romantic hit MISSISSIPPI MASALA and the Oscar-nominated SALAAM BOMBAY!, comes a freewheeling epic that examines the mystery of life and inexplicability of love. Set against the vibrant colors and rhythms of Miami's Little Havana, THE PEREZ FAMILY follows the lives of a group of Cuban immigrants who discover that a family had become strangers - and strangers became a family.
