Amparo

Simón Mesa Soto (2016)

Amparo doesn’t want her child to go to the obligatory military service. She can’t afford to raise money for an exemption warrant, and now she must decide whether to let go of her son or to make the greatest sacrifice of love to keep him at her side.

After the success with his short films Leidi (Palme D’Or, 2014) and Madre (nomination for  Palme D’Or, 2016), Amparo is Simón Mesa Soto’s debut feature film.
