"In director Daniel Armando’s multilayered film, Adina, a successful Latina actress, returns to New York in the aftermath of the death of her sister and the collapse of her marriage. Unable to face her mother, she finds herself in a fog, drifting through her days. Memories dissolve into the present as she tumbles through a series of intense, complex connections with a sexy, butch body artist, a young college student, and a former girlfriend. With confident directing, assured performances, and intuitive editing and cinematography, WHAT IT WAS masterfully conveys the emotional textures of Adina’s waking dream of a life." - Outfest Fusion
