    • Synopsis
    • Miguel is a 17 year-old boy that sees the future as a distant horizon, immersed in his bubble of friends and a sketchbook with sentimental drawings. “Saudade” is the portrait of a threshold: the end of high school, which we live through Miguel.
      His biological mother, whom he never met, asks his father to visit her in Buenos Aires upon finding herself gravely ill. The man goes without giving it a thought. The family crisis that this sudden voyage triggers and the economic deterioration of Ecuador in 1999 is the scenery on which Miguel will have to deal with the melancholy of seeing his world fall apart, so that he can invent one by on his own and start fending for himself.
