Julieta and her daughter Antíasuffer in silence over the loss of Xoan, Antía's father and Julieta's husband. When Antía turns eighteen she abandons her mother, without a word of explanation. Julieta looks for her in every possible way, but all she discovers is how little she knows of her daughter.

Based on three short stories from the book Runaway by Alice Munro. Julieta lives in Madrid with her daughter Antía. They both suffer in silence over the loss of Xoan, Antía's father and Julieta's husband. When Antía turns eighteen she abandons her mother, without a word of explanation. Julieta looks for her in every possible way, but all she discovers is how little she knows of her daughter. Years later, when Julieta is about to move to Portugal, she by chance meets Antía's childhood friend Beatriz and learns her daughter is living in Switzerland and has three children. Overcome by her desire to reestablish contact with Antía, she abandons plans to leave Madrid and instead leases an apartment in the building where she raised Antía, knowing that that address is Antía's only means of contacting her. Anticipating word from Antía, Julieta fills a journal with an account of her life as mother, spouse, and daughter. The story unfolds in flashbacks and the tragedy of Julieta’s life becomes clear.

Pedro Almodóvar

Pedro ALMODÓVAR (1949, Spain) is scriptwriter, producer and director. After starting his career in the 1980s, Almodóvar became one of the most important exponents of the new Spanish cinema, with his often controversial camp films. Todo sobre mi madre/All About My Mother won him an Oscar, as did the scenario of Hable con ella/Talk to Her (2002). Almodóvar is known for his distinctive visual style with bright colors and striking characters. Several actresses, such as Penelope Cruz and Rossy de Palma, recur regularly in Almodóvar's films.
