❤️ WHY WE LOVE IT ❤️

L.A. based Rocio Mesa, named by Variety as “one of the 10 Spanish women rising in the film biz”, returns to its hometown full of oneiric landscapes to blend coming of age elements with those inherent to the fantastic genre. This debut with a creature that could fit both in Miyazaki and Henson’s universes and created by Oscar Award Winners DDT (Guillermo del Toro’s PAN’S LABYRINTH, Juan Antonio Bayona’s A MONSTER CALLS) will take you to a mysterious and moving summer where anything can happen. Produced by La Claqueta (Spanish Oscar candidate THE ENDLESS TRENCH).

 

SYNOPSIS

Seven-year-old Vera lives in the big city but adores spending the holidays in her grandparent’s town and particularly in their deserted tobacco barn. Nieves, a teenager native from there whose father forces her to help out at the family’s land, can’t avoid but feeling caged. The two girls, driven by the sense of adventure and the need to find oneself respectively, will be connected to a magical creature that will change the way they see their own reality.
