La edad de la peseta

After years of separation and yet another failed marriage, Alicia returns to her mother’s house with her son Samuel. Although he’s only 9, Samuel seems more mature than his mother. He’s a serious boy who’s lost the ability to smile. Doña Violeta, the grandmother, hardened by the years of abandonment, gives them a less than warm welcome. The house is old and dark, full of cats and mystery. But the most troubling thing for the boy is his grandmother, who he hardly knows. Although the relationship is tense to begin with, bit by bit Violeta and the boy start becoming friends. The grandmother introduces him to the mysteries of photography. Difficult times lay ahead. The Cuban Revolution is felt more and more in the house via the radio and comments of visitors.
