In the follow-up to their 2010 feature Jean-Gentil, writer/director duo Laura Amelia Guzmán and Israel Cárdenas turn to the beach town of Las Terrenas in their latest film. Continuing their exploration of post-colonial legacies between the shared island nations of the Dominican Republic and Haiti, Dólares de Arena traces a complex love triangle between an older French woman (Geraldine Chaplin) and a young Dominican man (Ricardo Ariel Toribio), who are both in love with a 20-something Dominican woman (Yanet Mojica). In Spanish and English with English subtitles.
