SPAIN | 83 minutes | 2019

CANADIAN PREMIERE

After leaving one job, single mom Sara, barely 20, is already looking for another. Living in social housing, she lurches between the demands of her baby and those of her little brother, a repeat runaway. Then one day, her father resurfaces, eager to be part of her life again. Copping the award for best actress at San Sebastián 2019, Greta Fernández is astonishing in her portrayal of a feisty young woman locked in a struggle with harsh realities. A jittery, nuanced first feature from Spanish director Funes.

“Belén Funes is one of the most interesting and surprising voices in its recent cinema..." Cineuropa
“Steals your heart.” The Hollywood Reporter
