Estrella adores her enigmatic father, Agustín. As she grows up, she uncovers secrets that reshape her perception of him, altering their relationship. This Spanish film, directed by Víctor Erice, explores themes of admiration, disillusionment, and the complexity of family ties. Often considered as an overlooked masterpiece of Spanish cinema, the second feature of Victor Erice, nominated for a Palme d’Or in Cannes 1983, is a coming-of-age tale of a complicated father-daughter relationship, shaped by the difficult political context of the country at the time.
