Mi Vida is a film about the realization of your dreams.
Hairdresser Lou has a secret dream: she would like to live in Spain. Unfortunately, that’s not possible because she has to take care of her children and grandchildren. When taking her Spanish language course she befriends her teacher Andrea who encourages her to make her dream come true. But then her pregnant daughter Barbara suddenly appears on the sidewalk unannounced. She finds Lou’s relocation plans “ridiculous” and “self-centered”. And her son feels betrayed as well. Lou faces a dilemma should she choose for her own life or that of her family?
Mi Vida is a film about the realization of your dreams and the expectations we have of our lives, our future and our friendships. And about the willingness and courage of a brave, sixty-three-year-old woman to fulfill those expectations and dreams.
