This tender drama about returning to one’s roots centres around 10 year-old Ismael Tchou who heads for Barcelona in search of Félix Ambrós (Mario Casas, Witching & Bitching, Unit 7), the father that he’s never met. His only clue is the return address on a letter sent to his mother. He arrives on Nora’s doorstep, who happens to be Félix’s mother, played by the always-radiant Goya-Awardwinning actress Belén Rueda (The Sea Inside, The Body). Although she was previously unaware of Ismael’s existence and is somewhat estranged from her son, she is driven to compassion and takes the boy to the small coastal town where Félix lives.
In the days that follow, Ismael and Félix bond, but circumstances will uncover the painful past that bought about Ismael’s existence. Buried wounds will be bought to the surface as Ismael’s mother Alika and Félix see each other for the first time again and Félix is forced to confront his mistakes to make way for a new future.
