In a small port town in Cuba, Nelsa and her son Vladimir, live in bustling multifamily home. Vladimir has Down syndrome and requires the full attention and care of his mother, a patient, elderly head of the household. But when she falls ill, Vladimir—a beloved member in his community who is gregarious and easily gets into trouble—is thrust into a new role. Forced to assume adult responsibilities for the first time and make his own way without his mother’s guidance and support, he struggles with the challenges and ultimately finds fulfillment in everyday chores and caretaking. A poignant coming-of-age film and an intimate family drama, Casa Blanca follows the long and universal arc of the mother-son relationship as it grows and changes.

Co-presented by the Polish Cultural Institute New YorkConsulate General of the Republic of Poland in New York, and ReelAbilities Film Festival
