Directed by David Nieto
It’s the last day of school and Nicolas is about to be expelled after yet another class prank gone awry. This forces his mother, Aurora, a high-powered advertising executive obsessed with her work, to trek across town in order to convince school officials to lessen the punishment. Director David Nieto paints both characters as three-dimensional people in desperate need of a wake-up call. Part comedy, part coming-of-age drama, the film follows mother and son as they separately make peace with their failures and look forward to starting fresh.
