MOTHER KNOWS BEST

S A T   1 9   M A Y  |  1 . 3 0  P M

    Ana Luisa’s family meets at home to celebrate her father’s birthday. As the guests sit around the table, they share memories with a common denominator: the late Josefa, Ana’s mother. When listening to the stories, she realizes the impact that her deceased mother had on her life choices and imagines what would have happened had she followed other paths, taken other options and said what remained to be said.

    At the same time, an astrophysical event of unknown origin causes the change of space-time, allowing some people, all over the world, to access parallel universes. Ana Luisa is one of them, and will thus have the opportunity to change the past. But for this she will have to give up her present.
