    • "The Excuse of the American Dream" is a movie about family ties, about a mother-daughter relationship.
      In the year 2002, Silvana, recently separated, leaves her country and her daughter to emigrate and settle in Miami. In spite of being connected all the time thanks to technology, there is a huge distance between mother and daughter and their whole communication is superficial.
      Miami is a city where nobody ever grows up, where everything appears to be perfect, but is it really like that? How is the other Miami?
      Silvana lives her life as if she was the star of a reality show, but is this really her?
      16 years later since Silvana’s departure, Florencia travels in order to look for the real Miami and using the documentary as an excuse, tries to connect with her mother for the first time.
