Luis and Vadier join 17-year-old Eugenia on a road trip in search of Eugenia’s unknown Italian grandfather whose citizenship may guarantee her a European passport and a way out of Venezuela’s political and economic crisis. After a torrid affair, she promises Luis that they will meet in Rome in 13 years. Time passes and the now adult Eugenia receives a phone call reminding her of that promise, one she no longer wants to keep. “Opposite Direction” is much more than a portrait of the Venezuelan diaspora; it’s a story about hopes dashed and restored.

Luis y Vadier acompañan a Eugenia, de 17 años, en un viaje por carretera en busca de su desconocido abuelo italiano, cuya ciudadanía podría garantizarle un pasaporte europeo y una salida a la crisis política y económica de Venezuela. Después de vivir una relación tórrida, Eugenia promete a Luis que se encontrarán en Roma en 13 años. El tiempo pasa y la ahora adulta Eugenia recibe una llamada telefónica que le recuerda esa promesa, una que ya no quiere cumplir. “Dirección opuesta” es mucho más que un retrato de la diáspora venezolana; es una historia sobre esperanzas desvanecidas y restauradas.
