52nd edition


Fortnight 2018, Feature film, 1h47
World premiere


Petra doesn’t know who her father is. Her entire life, it’s been hidden from her. After the death of her mother, she embarks on a search that leads her to Jaume, a famous artist and a powerful, ruthless man. On her path to uncovering the truth, Petra also meets Jaume’s son, Lucas, as well as Marisa, his mother and Jaume’s wife. That is when the story of these characters begins to intertwine in a spiral of malice, family secrets and violence that drives them all to the edge. But fate’s cruel logic is derailed by a twist that opens a path to hope and redemption.


Jaime Rosales

Following his business studies, he was given a grant in 1996 to study film. His debut film Las horas del dia (Fipresci Prize at the Directors' Fortnight in 2003) was followed by La soledad (selected at Un Certain regard in 2007) for which he won numerous awards. Later, Sueño y silencio was selected at the Directors' Fortnight in 2012. In 2014, Hermosa juventud was chosen for Un Certain Regard.
