Director Rodrigo Sorogoyen (MAY GOD SAVE US, THE REALM) builds on the story he began in his Oscar®-nominated 2017 short with this slow-burn thriller about a mother grappling with the loss of her son. Ten years have gone by since Elena's (Marta Nieto) six-year-old son (Álvaro Balas) has disappeared. The last thing she heard from him was a phone call he made to 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 (Jules Porier) 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. Winner, Best Actress (Marta Nieto), 2019 Venice Film Festival; Best Actress (Nieto), 2019 Seville European Film Festival; Best Actress (Nieto), 2020 Cinema Writers Circle Awards, Spain; Best Actress (Nieto), 2020 José María Forqué Awards.
