    • Synopsis
    • In this poignant debut, a young widow’s attempt to bond with both her 8-year-old son and her new boyfriend on a beach vacation becomes a strained exercise in adulthood and class dynamics. Filled with moments of humor and irony as well as isolation and nostalgia, SEMANA SANTA plunges us into the difficulties of the young, post-modern family where
      staying relevant, staying high and remaining independent are all too important. A memorable evocation of lost youth, rebellion and a society in transition, Alejandra Márquez Abella's film asks us to contemplate the essence of family and love.
