La Posada (The Inn)
La Posada (The Inn)
By José Cruz González.

Cast: 3m., 2w. This is a festive holiday treat for the entire family to enjoy. Aurelio and Anita, an elderly Mexican-American couple, prepare their home to receive guests celebrating Las Posadas. This traditional Christmas custom involves the entire neighborhood reenacting the Holy Family's journey seeking shelter. Filled with music and nostalgia, Aurelio and Anita recall their first encounter. They transform back magically. We see them fall in love and get engaged, only to face El Nino, Anita's former fiancé. He takes exception to an "Americano" wooing away his girl. El Nino is a Mexican macho who won't accept defeat. So Aurelio and El Nino face off in a Mexican showdown where eating spicy "chiles" will win the hand of Anita. La Posada will embrace the hearts and bring laughter to audiences of all ages. One int. set. Approximate Running Time: 45 minutes.
