Melissa Barrera in All the World is Sleeping
America certainly has a drug addiction problem. Families are torn apart, with many mothers losing control over their lives. Director and Writer Ryan Lacen took many real-life stories of seven mothers to create an emotional drama with All the World is Sleeping starring Melissa Barrera.
Here is the official synopsis:
All the World is Sleeping follows Chama (Melissa Barrera), who as a young girl in New Mexico, strived to be different from her mother. Now in her twenties, she’s found herself falling into a similar cycle of generational addiction. This struggle then threatens her balance as a mother to her own daughter. As Chama tries to keep it all together, a harrowing accident will spiral her out of control, causing her daughter to be taken from her custody. With nothing left, she’ll have to confront her past in order to fight for a future – one that can either guide her closer to getting her daughter back or lead her deeper into this dangerous cycle.
The film also stars Jackie Cruz (Orange is the New Black), Jorge Garcia (Lost), Kristen Gutoskie (The Handmaid’s Tale), Lisandra Tena (Fear the Walking Dead), Luis Bordonada (Vida), Valentina Herrera (Black Widow), and Adilynn Marie Menendez (The Medium). The film story is inspired by Jade Sanchez, Doralee Urban, Myra Salazar, Patricia Marez, Carly Hicks, Kayleigh Smith, and Malissa Trujillo.
