Storyline

One year after suffering a horrible traffic accident, Geni is ready to resume her life... or at least that's what her family wants to see. The truth is that despite trying to please everyone, Geni feels unable to live up to expectations: her life before the accident no longer interests her. Why resume it then? The confusion that this creates causes her behavior to become increasingly more erratic and leads to a single idea that begins to grow within her: escape. Written by Anonymous

unpredictable, moving and powerful
3 August 2014 | by Raven-1969See all my reviews

In a tragedy, when one is reduced to a mere fragment of themselves, often comes the awareness of inner powers and jewels. Geni, recovering from a traumatic car accident, begins to question her relatives and friends, and chase passions that she never dared to before. The realizations come to her gradually, yet with steadfastness and conviction. Bartering away her wedding ring in exchange for cab fare is only the beginning. Those who try to convince Geni that she has few options, and want to keep her in a box built for themselves, do not know the true Geni. They are not aware of her newfound truths. One of these truths, and perhaps the most potent one, is that life is beautiful because it is unpredictable. Director Mar Coll admirably lets the characters tell the stories and makes them more balanced and real. Nora Navas' performance is masterful and effective. Coll's film is unpredictable, moving and powerful. Seen at the 2014 Miami International Film Festival.
