Daniela Féjerman demonstrates her mastery of strong narrative in a drama that she had to endure for herself: the extremely tough process of adopting a child in a country riddled with corruption.
A Spanish couple travel to Eastern Europe with bright hopes of adopting a child. However, things do not work out as they had expected. The dream they came with threatens to turn into a nightmare as their case is dealt with by dishonest pencil pushers in a strange country and they wait to be assigned a healthy (or not so healthy) child. Finding themselves faced with growing hostility, their own latent conflicts come to the fore. The anguish felt by this couple is brought to life with conviction by Catalan actors Nora Navas (Goya Award-winner for Black Bread, 2011) and Francesc Garrido who portrays a highly nuanced character, bristling with expressive glances and mood swings. Both leads convincingly chart the highly emotional journey of this couple making for a truly moving and lasting cinematic experience.
