Spanish with English subtitles

With Maribel Verdú, Tito Valverde, Arón Piper, Belén López.

Spanish selection for the Oscars 2014. 15 Years + 1 Day is a moving drama that marks the triumphant return of director Gracia Querejeta to the big screen.

Margo (Maribel Verdú, Belle Époque, Y tu mamá también) is struggling to deal with her son, Jon (Arón Piper) a rebellious and freespirited teenager who runs with a bad crowd. After Jon is expelled from school, Margo sends him to live with his grandfather Max (Tito Valverde, El comisario, Todos los hombre sois iguales), a retired military officer who lives in a small coastal town and believes he can fix his grandson with his own style of discipline. This new home does not equal an attitude change, and when Jon is seriously injured after being involved in a grave crime, both boy and man will learn to face their fears and limitations.
