Shot with a crew of six and a cast of non-professional actors, My Sister’s Quinceañera is a naturalistic and sensitive telling of Hispanic family life in small town Iowa. As man of the house, big brother Silas (Silas Garcia) helps his single, working mom by caring for his younger siblings. Feeling trapped and wanting more from life, he struggles to find his own future on his own terms.
