Single mother Dali and her young son Pepe take a beach holiday with Dali’s boyfriend during Holy Week. From the beginning, we understand that Pepe very clearly has no interest in his mother’s new partner. The already volatile relationship between the three is further challenged by competing interests regarding the vacation and how to spend their time. This brilliant debut feature follows the structural form of Holy Week itself, exploring themes of traditional family bonds, crisis, liberation, individuality, and reconciliation. In English and Spanish with English subtitles. Contains mature content.
