Young Hector must choose a new family. Which one will it be?
12 December 2004 | by caraigSee all my reviews

This is a film about the complex histories and interrelationships among a small group of ordinary people in contemporary Madrid. Adolescent Hector becomes orphaned at age 16 when his drug addicted mother dies in an auto accident. He comes to live with his dead mother's sister, her husband and her daughter. Just as he is tentatively making his way into a new family, his Mexican father arrives on the scene. The father, who had abandoned Hector and his mother when the boy was an infant, arrives to woo him away. Will he go to Mexico with his father? Will he stay with his aunt's family? Director Gracia Querejeta makes us care very much what Hector's decision will be.
