Using elements of magical realism, AMAPOLA is a visually stunning and wildly romantic reimagining of William Shakespeare’s classic play A Midsummer Night’s Dream, set against the turbulent backdrops of the 1962 Argentine military coup and the 1982 war for the Falkland Islands. On the eve of the coup, Amapola, a beautiful young actress, is magically transported into the future and glimpses the tragic fate that has befallen her and her family. Returning to the present day, as her country is tearing itself apart, she strives to keep her family together, salvage their happiness and find her own true love.
