Carmen, a young and fiercely independent woman, is forced to flee her home in the Mexican desert following the brutal murder of her mother. After surviving a terrifying and dangerous illegal border crossing into the U.S., she is captured by a fierce border patrol agent, but saved by his partner, Aidan, who helps Carmen escape. They make their way north toward Los Angeles in search of her mother’s best friend and the owner of La Sombra nightclub, a sanctuary of music and dance. But while the pair find solace and love for each other in this magical refuge, time is running out as the police hunt closes in.

Melissa Barrera (In the Heights) and Academy Award-nominee Paul Mescal (Aftersun) are dazzling in Benjamin Millepied’s critically acclaimed, modern-day retelling of one of history’s most famous love stories and operas, featuring a majestic new music score by Nicholas Britell.
