When Matias (Ezequiel Moralino) returns from school one afternoon, he finds his mother Laura (Julieta Diaz) lying beaten up on the kitchen floor of their Buenos Aires apartment. Clearly a victim of regular domestic violence, Laura is determined that this episode will be the last, and subsequently leaves home with her son in tow. This marks the beginning of an escape for a new life, but her husband’s relentless pursuit looms over them.

Director Diego Lerman crafts a mother-child relationship that is both touching and realistic. Together, the duo takes refuge in transitional environments, from shelters to love motels. In this gritty film, the emotions are strong, and the strength of the characters reign supreme.
