Synopsis: 

A fresh, elegantly understated variation on such recent films as Clandestine Childhood and The Year My Parents Went on Vacation, Red Princesses is a sensitive, politically charged coming of age period film about the 11-year-old daughter of Sandinista activists struggling to find herself amidst uprooting, turmoil and secrets.
