Director

Achero Mañas

The first feature-length film by Achero Mañas is a sensitive, intelligent study of child abuse, which was a success with both critics and the public.
 

Pablo is a 12 year old neighbourhood kid, whose family lives under the shadow of the loss of his older brother. One day a new boy, Alfredo, arrives at his school and they become friends. His new friend’s parents treat him like a member of the family. Pablo thus begins to discover a way of family life that is different from his own, and that will help him to face his difficult situation at home.
