Delicate observations of the many facets of motherhood. Along with her four-year-old daughter, divorced Mabel returns to her mother’s house, where her younger sister and grandmother also live. A tender film by this Argentine talent demonstrates love and attachment, but also impotence. Recognisable and poignant for both mother and (adult) child.
