Intimate, insightful and moving, LEONA tells the story of Ariela (Naian González Norvind, who also co-wrote the screenplay), a young Jewish woman from Mexico City who finds herself torn between her family and her forbidden love for a non-Jewish man. Ripe with all the drama and interpersonal conflicts of a Jane Austen novel, LEONA tracks Ariela's journey as she negotiates the labyrinth of familial pressure, religious precedent and her own burgeoning sentiment. There are no easy choices to be made as Ariela struggles with her heart to take the best path. Winner, Best Debut Feature, 2019 UK Jewish Film Festival; Winner, Best Actress (Naian González Norvind) – 2018 Morelia International Film Festival.
