Bees and Honey


SYNOPSIS: Inspired by the Juan Luis Guerra song "Como Abeja Al Panal," Bees and Honey is an intimate portrait of a Dominican couple's love and dreams in New York City. Manuel and Johaira met at a Washington Heights club and it was love at first sight. Now married, the ambitious young couple hopes to achieve their dreams together. Manuel's entrepreneurial spirit drives to him to expand his mechanic shop, while Johaira lands a career-defining sexual assault case that could help her make partner at her law firm. As the high-profile trial takes its toll on Johaira, she also begins to question whether her husband will ever outgrow his bad boy mentality. Adding in Manuel's ailing mother and an unforeseen tragedy, the pair is pushed to its limits as their love is tested daily.
