Destinos: 3rd Chicago International Latino Theater Festival
Chicago | World Premiere
Written by Rebeca Aleman
Directed by Iraida Tapias

Inspired by true events. This poignant drama by Rebeca Alemán is about a Human Rights journalist, Paulina, who has recently emerged from a coma and must recover her memory in order to unveil the truth and achieve justice. All she remembers is that she has a mother and a daughter. Rodrigo by her side goes to inconceivable lengths to help her. Two characters immersed into a world of violence where cruelty is a habit, impunity is routine, freedom a utopia, and telling the truth is the greatest risk.
Presented as part of Steppenwolf’s LookOut Series.
