    • Synopsis
    • Juana, an eleven-year-old girl, forms part of a very special family; they have the ability to transform into animals, although she doesn’t know it yet. She discovers the truth the day her mother transforms into a parrot. Juana has three days to return her mother to human form otherwise she will stay a parrot forever. With help from her uncle, her grandmother and a group of friends from school they will try to help rescue the parrot mom from the shenanigans she gets herself into. A mysterious character and limited amount of time will be the biggest risks. Set on the coast of Argentina and embedded in an esthetic filled with magical Latin-American realism, this movie invites us to reflect on who we are. My Parrot Mom breaks all beauty, genre and power stereotypes. And that is, along with its harmonious cinematic rhythm, its most precious treasure.
