Description

Luisa is coming home. Institutionalized for severe postpartum depression–and accused of having tried to harm her baby–she returns to the palatial estate, where family and servants watch her every move. Everyone wants her troubles to vanish, but are they pushing her to a more profound suffering?

Luisa walks like a ghost through her glass walled home, still shaky in the wake of her turmoil. But no one wants to discuss the past, nor do they have any patience for even the slightest disruption. Isolated, seemingly living a dream (or is it a nightmare?) Luisa is trapped - in her upper class society, in her role as a mother, in her stigma as a person struggling with mental illness. As the days grind on, Luisa is unsure if she can hold it together. Director Javier Andrade co-wrote the film with lead actress Anahí Hoeneisen, whose performance embodies the almost unbearably tense exploration of the challenges of motherhood.
