With Stella Galazzi, Carlos Rivkin, Valeria Correa

Graciela yearns for a fresh start in the countryside, but her dreams are dashed when she learns of her father’s friendship with a homeless young woman. Fueled by confusion and frustration, Graciela tries to separate them, unable to comprehend her father’s attachment. However, her perspective shifts dramatically when she discovers the woman is pregnant. This revelation brings Graciela closer to her, forging an unexpected connection. The unfolding story promises a journey of understanding, empathy, and perhaps a new beginning for them all.

“Sincere and humanistic story, very well performed by its leading trio and with a fair and simple staging.” – Diego Lerer, MicropsiaCine

Notes on Film

“I heard a story of an old man carrying a baby in the middle of the night. Those few elements, an old man, a baby, and the city at night justified many years of work in this script. The old man was my partner´s grandfather, who died some time ago. The family was very alarmed by the controversial friendship that he had with a homeless girl. Francisco had a senile disease and it felt really dangerous that he was so exposed.

Witnessing this family problem made me think of autonomy and loneliness. During his terrible illness, I felt that Francisco enjoyed that last opportunity to protect someone, even if doing so, distancing himself from those who wanted to protect him. As his cognitive abilities faded away, he left us with a different idea of what solidarity is.”

– Mayra Bottero, Director
