Synopsis

Ten years have gone by since Elena’s six-year old son has disappeared. The last thing she heard of him was a phone call he gave her, saying that he was lost on a beach in France and couldn’t find his father. Nowadays, Elena lives on this same beach and manages a restaurant. She is finally beginning to emerge from this tragic episode when she meets a French teenager who strongly reminds her of her lost son. The two of them will embark on a relationship, which will sow chaos and distrust around them.

Director’s Statement

With the feature film Madre, I was interested in moving away from the thriller aspects of the short film to explore the intimate story of a mother, years after she has lost her son. Living with her grief and struggling to emerge from the dark tunnel into which she was plunged. What would happen if Elena encountered a teenager who reminded her strongly of her son? She knows it isn’t him. But she wants to be with him and know him. Madre is a love story. A special love, that of a mother for her son throughout time. A mother who had not been able to say goodbye to her son and who is now ready to do so. It is also a journey from darkness to light. From death to life. From guilt to forgiveness. From fear to love.
