Gutsy cinema that breaks new ground
| 105 minutes | 2017
Blindness becomes a trigger for emancipation. A debut film, carried by a promising young actress, that’s a breath of fresh air. Ava, 13, is gradually losing her sight. Her mood is somber. Juan, a young gypsy outcast, becomes an unexpected light at the end of the tunnel.
