Six months after the
death of his wife in a car accident, Roberto and his teenage daughter Alejandra
set off from Puerto Vallarta for a fresh start in Mexico City. Alejandra finds
her feet more easily than Roberto does, but very soon, she has aroused the
baser instincts in her classmates. Ashamed and unable to tell her father about
the escalating bullying at school, Alejandra’s silence ultimately takes a
dreadful toll. The film is the Mexican submission for the 2013 Best Foreign-Language Academy Award.
Hosted by the Department of International and Interdisciplinary Studies and the Camden-Carroll Library.
