Seeking to this position prevented in preview mode

My 82-year-old grandmother Gloria, took my cousin Maria into her home for a while. Gloria has been a widow for 16 years, is very Catholic, and has never discussed sex or love with any of her relatives, least of all with her young granddaughter. Maria, 17 years old, is discovering sexuality and love and is beginning to live the freedom of a young girl of her age.

Scenes take place mainly in the grandmother's house, where both women live. Through the device of two screens in synchrony, the stories of each of them will arrive in parallel and will converge in a timely manner, thus generating a dialogue between them that does not occur in reality. The proposal will seek to enter a feminine and intimate universe through the grandmother-granddaughter bond, while at the same time portraying two types of women who share the same present from different perspectives: On the one hand, the older generation, like Gloria, who because of the type of education she received learned to obey, serve and keep quiet; and the generation of the future, which is my cousin's generation, a generation that has grown up in a society in which the traditional family model is in crisis, young people accustomed to a consumer society and who relate mostly through social networks (Instagram, Snapchat, whatsapp ...).
