Sand Dollars

Sand Dollars

Las Terrenas in the Dominican Republic is a tourist’s dream: lush vegetation, windswept beaches and turquoise waters. Anne, a rich, elderly Frenchwoman, has been in a relationship in Las Terrenas for some time with Noelí, a young Dominicana. Although Anne knows that Noelí sees her primarily as a source of money, she is hopelessly in love with the girl. When Noelí reveals that she’s pregnant, Anne’s romantic illusions start to come undone.
