The 38th latitude divides the United States roughly in half. After decades of blistering partisan debate over immigration, gay rights, euthanasia, gun control, capital punishment, school prayer, same-sex marriage, and on the brink of total anarchy following three bloody nationwide riots over pro-choice, the United States is forced to split itself into separate north and south republics along the 38th latitude.
Latitude 38 is a cautionary tale of love, peril, and one woman’s quest to die with dignity. Diego and Adriana Sanchez are deeply in love and their world is shattered when she is diagnosed with terminal cancer. They live south of the 38th where terminal patients are given only placebos to fight excruciating pain. Their sole option is to flee to the north where euthanasia is mercifully encouraged.Latitude 38 is the story of Diego and Adriana’s enduring love and their courageous journey in search of dignity and humanity as a small group of “tourists” attempts to secretly cross the heavily guarded border in a cruel, dogmatic, and violent world.
