Seven-year-old Matías (Sebastián Molinaro) waits to be picked up from a friend’s birthday party. When no one shows, some friends take the boy to the apartment he shares with his mother Laura (Julieta Díaz). Once home, Matías discovers Laura unconscious on the floor. Laura is taken to hospital to have her injuries treated, and she reveals to the police that she was attacked by her husband, who is accusing her of having an affair and carrying another man’s child in her womb. Tired of the abuse, Laura decides to run away with Matías, to escape a situation that she cannot control—and that she worries could end her life and that of her son.

Diego Lerman’s latest feature deals with the difficulties of a young mother seeking refuge for herself and for her son while being confronted with the harsh realities of fleeing from all she knows. This destabilizing journey will prove eye-opening for Matías, who cannot really understand the situation he is in—but it is a situation he must learn from very quickly if he is going to survive. – Andres Castillo
