Ten-year-old Lucía lives with her parents and sister at Lake Titicaca in the Bolivian mountains. When her father leaves the family to take a job in La Paz, Lucía imagines a mythical place where he awaits her arrival. Slowly, she combines memories of her absent parent with stories she hears from tourists visiting her village, whimsically changing all aspects of her life as she prepares to reunite with her father. As her scheming solidifies, she befriends a young boy to assist with her dramatic plans. With Sun & Daughter, Bolivian Italian first-time director Catalina Razzini creates a dreamy story of the power of a child’s imagination and the love between a parent and a child.
