Synopsis:
Directed by Ken Loach and written by Paul Laverty, 'Carla's Song' tells the story of the relationship between George (Robert Carlyle), a free spirited Scottish bus driver and Carla (Oyanka Cabezas), a Nicaraguan refugee who is adrift in Glasgow. The setting is 1987 and in Carla's home country the Contra rebels are continuing their assault on the people and Sandinista government. As George's feelings for Carla deepen, he believes the only way for her to overcome the traumas that haunt her everyday life is to return to her homeland.
But will she be able to bury the ghosts of her past and stay close to George? 'Carla's Song' is a love story that begins on a Glasgow bus and ends in Nicaragua amid the gunfire and explosions of war.
