Director: Laura Basombrío
Producer: Anahí Farfán
Estela lost her mother a few years ago but feels her presence every day. Her mother visits her in dreams, reveals things and asks her to do certain things. In the emptiness that followed her mother's recent passing, Estela understands that her soul is ailing. The wounds inflicted by her father during years of abuse are still open. A healer advises her to perform a healing ritual but Estela does not want to face her father. The living, the dead and the ghosts of he past coexist in her world.

Objectives to be achieved
We are looking forward to generate meetings with potential co-producers, distributors, festival programmers and sales agents.
Co-production´s interesting countries
We have a special interest in co-producing with Chile because of it´s proximity with the location of the film, and with Mexico because of the theme of the film. But at the same time we would like to have the opportunity to co-produce with Spain or France, countries that have diverse support funds and exhibition windows for Latin American cinema.
