synopsis
After a lifetime working in the California fields, Lupe discovers that he is about to die. Desperate to make amends, he struggles to return to his family in Mexico before it is too late. Blurring the line between narrative and documentary, LUPE is inspired by the life of the director's own grandfather and shot with a cast of non-actors in real locations. Intimate and lyrical, Lupe's story captures the struggle of a generation of migrant workers chasing after the American Dream.
