Synopsis

Set in Washington, D.C. and El Salvador, SWEETWATER AMERICAN is the story of an orphan and would-be filmmaker who is sent to live in a cursed town in El Salvador with her godmother, a woman whom she has never met and who may hold the secret to breaking the town's curse.

While living in El Salvador, after a film crew comes to her town to film a movie, twenty-two-year-old Sandy realizes she wants to be a documentary filmmaker. When she returns to the States, she attends George Washington University where she meets Elena, a sixty-something-year-old woman who serves peas and mashed potatoes in one of the school's cafeterias.

She also meets Professor Smith, with whom she slowly begins to fall in love. But, Sandy's past still haunts her, preventing her from surrendering her heart to the man she loves.

Sandy, intrigued by Elena, decides to ask her if she would be willing to share her life story with her. Elena agrees to tell Sandy her story. During the interview, Sandy is forced to come to terms with her own past and she begins to understand what the term, Sweetwater American, really means.
