The first Venezuelan film to ever be part of the Cannes Critics' Week competition, this is an urgent look at life in Caracas through the eyes of a single father.
After a violent run-in leaves another boy dead, father and son flee the city. Their already shaky bond is tested as he tries to protect his headstrong son from falling into a life of hopelessness.
This stunning debut from director Gustavo Rondón Córdova provides an authentic and moving view of contemporary Venezuela.
