Days before embarking on a trip of a lifetime across the Atlantic Ocean with a couple of friends on a Mexican boat, Marie, a french woman, receives the news that she will have to stay all by herself at a yacht marina during the government-imposed lockdown amidst the coronavirus pandemic.

Director Biography - Alejandro Torres-Kennedy

Born in Mexico City on October 18th, 1986, Alejandro's journey into the world of cinema started with a sailing voyage that he made with some friends in 2013. He'd bought a small handycam to make a video of their trip across the Pacific Ocean, and weeks later, in the self-learning process of editing, he knew he'd found his true passion. He would eventually quit the hospitality business and, in his late twenties, decided to pursue a career in filmmaking. Working as a screenwriter for TV and later as a videographer for a small production company, gave him the self-confidence to start writing and directing short films (Fait Accompli, Anna, Here I Am, Attuned). After a couple years, he created his own production company, KRIYA MEDIA, where he's produced and directed commercials for brands like YSL, ACQUA DI GIO, KLM and more.
In March of 2020 Alejandro flew to South Africa to embark on another sailing trip, hoping to navigate across the Atlantic towards Brazil, but ended up stranded at a marina due to the coronavirus pandemic. It was during this time that he wrote and directed, guerilla-style, his first feature-length film: Transition.
