Great movie about the lack of love and its consequences
This is a wonderful movie about how the lack of love and care from the most important people in someone's life can hurt you and make you get the wrong way and loose yourself in a world of deep frustration and pain. "Raquel" (Marisa Paredes) is a bitter prostitute who hates her life and her son's vulnerability. This one, "Gonzalo" (Javi Pereira), is an innocent and sensitive boy who fails trying to move around a jungle he can't stand. He's in love with "Mimo" (Marta Etura) but the girl seems to feel just a deep care for the sweet boy. Her father is a rude man whose makes her life and other's life difficult. Her cousin is just the opposite of "Gonzalo" and uses him to get some benefit. Gonzalo gets some peace with a friend of his mother, another prostitute called "Carmen" (Raquel Pérez), who, instead of her bad situation, tries to go on with her life as good as she can. When "Adrián" (Unax Ugalde), a young man who has recently leave a psychiatric, ask Gonzalo for a gun at the beginning of the film the things starts to change. Adrián got Gonzalo into his plans helping him as well with his vulnerability and changing his life.
