Lina—an immigrant from Lima—works in Chile for a wealthy family in order to send money to her own in Peru. While her ex-husband has begun a new family, her teen son, Junior, is more interested in his phone than holding a conversation. Although distance has strained her relationship with Junior, Lina looks forward to her trip home for the holidays. During the day she works hard overseeing the construction of her employer’s new pool and tending to their daughter; at night she secretly hosts a string of lovers at their currently empty home. In reality she’s scrubbing messes and saving every dollar. But Lina’s inner life is a vivid musical, complete with flashy costume changes, shirtless men, and characters bursting into lively pop songs. LINA FROM LIMA approaches the day-in-a-life narrative with daydreams in mind, the mundane sprinkled with elaborate musical numbers, making Lina the glowing star of her own show. (In Spanish, Quechua, and Haitian Creole with subtitles) — D.O.
