When young woman Amaia gives birth to her child she retreats to her parent’s home in a Basque village. There she will learn to understand better her mother, whom, like so many others, had to give up ambitions to bring up a family. Endorsed by Pedro Almodóvar, Ruiz de Azúa’s debut feature film is a poignant examination of the mother-daughter relationship that avoids sentimentality. Laia Costa’s interpretation stands out as a young mother initially overwhelmed, then learning to cope with all the changes and life responsabilities that come with the arrival of her daughter.
