Ever Amado, Victor Ruano & Tony Perez (El Salvador, 2008)

Spanish and English (with subtitles). 45 min.

Ever Amado (a man) is a hurting and bitter illegal immigrant from El Salvador. He left the country with his wife Flor to escape the brutal civil war, only to find himself alone in a clandestine border hospital as an amputee. In his isolation, the anger and bitterness that have ruled Ever for so long finally begin to weaken. Ultimately, as Ever confronts his physical pain, he discovers a life-changing spiritual revelation. It is one of the few films produced in El Salvador in recent years.
