The School of International Service presents El Regreso:

After a decade abroad, Antonio returns to Costa Rica for a short visit. Upon his return, Antonio finds a country that has shed its peaceful, bucolic coffee-farming past: roads are congested with traffic and residents have erected giant fences to fend off would-be thieves. Unable to run away as usual, he is confronted with everything he has desperately struggled to put in the past: a broken family, an ailing father, a violent country and long lost friends. However, a chance meeting in the grocery store with an old childhood friend might just give him a reason to stick around. A truly independent film (in part crowd-funded) and a runaway box office success in Costa Rica, it was named the Best International Feature Film at the 2011 New York Latino Film Festival and has continued to receive critical acclaim since.
