Ana y yo is a documentary about Primavera Ruiz and her family. Primavera’s mother, Ana, is the ultimate matriarch. After a tragic accident in the family, Ana adopted two children from Equatorial Guinea as a single mother, and goes onto train her eight children to become an internationally renowned equestrian vaulting team. Primavera explores the whirlwind that is her mother and the impact Ana’s decisions have had on the family, in an effort to strengthen the bond between her two adopted sisters who no longer speak. Primavera digs deep into family history asking forbidden questions over the course of four years. On a voyage of self discovery and forgiveness, Primavera encourages her adoptive sisters to travel with her to Equatorial Guinea in a search for truth and understanding.
