Mañana a esta hora / This Time Tomorrow

Colombia, Canada / 2016 / 85 mins.

Bogotá, Colombia. 17-year-old Adelaida lives with her parents Lena, an event planner, and Francisco, a sculptor and art teacher. Together, they enjoy a comfortable family life with the usual ups and downs. But cracks are beginning to show. As Francisco isn’t that involved in the domestic details, most of the housekeeping and parental duties fall onto the already overworked Lena. Although she is strong and driven, she struggles to fulfill the role of the working mother. At the peak of her teen angst and facing her own identity crisis, Adelaida is constantly at odds with Lena: one minute she is sweet, caring, studious, and the next one she is wild, tempestuous and defiant, staying out late to spend time with friends and flirting with boys. Until a tragedy occurs and the family has to confront their biggest struggle yet and the uncertainty that tomorrow brings.
