SELLING FAST

Against the stunning backdrop of the Peruvian Andes, 14-­year ­old Segundo is being groomed to follow his father’s footsteps in the traditional folk art of retablo ­making. 

When he stumbles across a heartbreaking secret his father is harbouring, Segundo will come to face the raw reality of his deeply religious and conservative landscape, as well as a more profound connection with his father than he’d ever imagined. 

Starring Magaly Solier ("The Milk of Sorrow", "Magallanes") and Amiel Cayo ("Oliver's Deal", "NN"), this coming­-of­ age story masterfully explores the weight of heritage, the boundaries of love, and the burdens of family expectations and stars.
