Premier latinoamericana

A look into the life of five children in the afternoom their mother 
leaves home. This absence works as a vehicle to create a seemingly unconscious universe of fantasy and adventure, with the humor, tenderness, and joy of childhood. 

In a modest house, and left to their own devices, four small children spend the day under the care of their older sister. An excursion through their surroundings, running in a park, karaoke sessions and wrestling, crying, yelling, ice-creams, some roof-climbing, and water through a hose. “God bless the child that’s got his own,” sang Billie Holiday, and the film seems to be built upon that statement, as it shapes the world to their measure. Beating any kind of neglect, chasing away any kind of danger an with enough freedom in its form to run along with them, the film does away with adults in order to gain some pure autonomy, where every experience is an adventure and the possibilities seem endless. A celebration of wild childhood shot one meter from the floor. MA
