Horizons is a lyrical portrait of the lives of three Cuban women dedicated to the art of ballet—a 94 year-old living legend as she surrounds herself with memories; an acclaimed prima ballerina in her prime yet growing keenly aware of the fragility of her body; and of a young upstart struggling to rise through the ranks while searching for her voice.
When her father dies unexpectedly, Celina leaves her dead-end job as a tollbooth operator and assumes her father’s as a traveling encyclopedia salesperson. Setting out on her first trip away from home, Celina embarks on a journey of facing the mysteries of adulthood and of the beauty of unexpected graces. Fernando Salem’s award winning debut feature strikes a delicate balance between humor and tenderness.
