Description

Woven from footage collected over a quarter of a century, ROCIO is the story of a mother's love and the American Dream. When doting mother of three Rocio is suddenly diagnosed with terminal kidney cancer, her son Dario takes a leave of absence from Harvard College to come home and take care of her. Their battle against the disease leads them into the world of alternative medicine, where they find hope shimmering at a clinic across the border. The catch: Pursuing this last chance at survival might mean giving up everything they've ever worked for.
