Plaza Catedral (2021)

Sobre o filme

Alicia had a perfect life and lost it. Her six year old son died in an accident she feels she could have avoided. Her grief is plagued by guilt, which has made her disassociate from society, from married life, and from herself. She now lives in the old quarter of Panama, a rich colonial enclave surrounded by Panama’s poorest neighbourhoods. There she meets Chief, a streetsmart 13-year-old who takes care of cars in front of her apartment and insists on getting paid for his job. Alicia keeps a safe distance from him, until one night Chief arrives at Alicia’s apartment bleeding from a gunshot wound, and begs her for help. When she opened the door to Chief, she created an emotional bond that makes her feel connected to life again.
