Chuo, a charismatic young adult with Down syndrome, is stuck attending an elementary school despite his artistic talent and desire to become an artist. His father, José, once a highly regarded musician, struggles to provide for his son as he grapples with the disappointments of dreams deferred. When Chuo happens into a job at a small graphic design studio, he begins to find community and discover purpose and a sense of self. With his debut film, Director Ignacio Márquez delivers an intimate and ultimately uplifting father and son story that earned him the New Directors Silver Hugo award at the Chicago International Film Festival.
