In this ultimate family showdown, directed by Kimberly Senior, the “perfect” Latina daughter brings her boyfriend home to meet the parents, but when her family’s biases and preconceptions are put on full display, tensions run high and hilarity ensues. Everyone must navigate the ins and outs of family dynamics and the boundaries of acceptance — all while tackling the age-old question: what does it truly mean to be an American?

Torres plays Alejandro, an aspiring toy designer from El Salvador, struggling to bring his unusual ideas to life in New York City. As his work visa runs out, a job assisting an erratic art-world outcast, played by Academy Award winner Tilda Swinton, becomes his only hope to stay in the country and realize his dream. Problemista is a surreal adventure through the equally treacherous worlds of New York City and the U.S. Immigration system.

Problemista is in theaters everywhere March 22nd.
