Jose Amador in El Hijo Prodigo

El Hijo Prodigo tells the story of a man’s return to his native Puerto Rico after an absence of 22 years. He is soon reunited with—and beguiled by—the history and culture of the island state he once called home. This five-day headlong rush into his ancestral community culminates with the chance for him to face his life, home and family and see them for what they really are. A journey through the island’s music, mores, legends, people and traditions, El Hijo Prodigo brings to life the joys and sorrows of a Commonwealth barely 1100 miles from our shores.
