Inspired by writer-director-actor Ana Asensio's own experience as an undocumented migrant in New York, 'Most Beautiful Island' is a hugely impressive low-budget debut and a tense and timely critique on the Trump administration.
Luciana is striving to build a new life below the radar in New York with hand-to-mouth jobs. When a friend offers her the chance to earn $2000 in one night, she jumps at the chance. But Luciana will soon discover that she’s been lured into a twisted and dangerous game.
