The second film directed by the duo Samuel Martín Mateos and Andrés Luque Pérez, following their notable debut with the thriller ‘Agallas’ and, like the latter, produced by Antonio Saura, this time in collaboration with Tornasol. In this instance, they delve into the realm of revenge films through the story of a Colombian nurse who lost her daughter at the hands of paramilitaries. She travels later to the Canary Islands to exact vengeance on one of the executioners. Selected for the Beijing and Málaga film festivals, it is a harsh film narrated in two timelines, unflinching and tense, where Colombian actress Juana Acosta delivers one of her finest performances. She is joined by the seasoned Carmelo Gómez and the rising star Adriana Ugarte, who had previously found success in the series ‘La señora’ and ‘El tiempo entre costuras.’ A year later, she would become ‘Almodóvar’s muse’ in ‘Julieta’.
Maria, a Colombian nurse who lost her daughter at the hands of three militiamen, travels to the Spanish Canary Islands accompanied by her youngest son to find one of the killers and get her revenge. She keeps with her a picture that she found in the ruined home, showing a face, an inscription and a name: Ivan.
Gonzalo, a school psychologist whose existence changes dramatically the moment he meets Maria, joins her incessant and obsessive search. Meanwhile, in their little corner of the island, Ivan and his girlfriend Vero are unaware that their lives are about to change forever.
