Ten years have gone by since Elena's six-year old son has disappeared. The last thing she heard of him was a phone call he gave her, saying that he was lost on a beach in France and couldn't find his father. Nowadays, Elena lives on this same beach and manages a restaurant. She is finally beginning to emerge from this tragic episode when she meets a French teenager who strongly reminds her of her lost son. The two of them will embark on a relationship which will sow chaos and distrust around them.

Rodrigo Sorogoyen expands his Oscar-nominated white-knuckler of a short in a most unexpected way: slower, calmer and imbued with metaphysical mystery.

It is undeniable that Sorogoyen is a master filmmaker. His work with his actors is impressive, with Nieto, in a fully bilingual performance, and Porier are both natural yet nuanced.

An excellent work... distinguishes itself by the scriptwriters capturing in the protagonist a complex inner world. [Full review in Spanish]

The superb technical skill of the director surprises once again. He doesn't give viewers what they want or expect, but rather submerges them into the poison of an ambiguous and murky story. [Full Review in Spanish]

A film about lost relations between a son and a mother. A mother surviving his lost, at the same place where her child was lost. An audiovisual work of the duel and how to deal with it. [Full Review in Spanish]
