Valeria is 17 and pregnant. She lives in Puerto Vallarta with her step-sister Clara. Valeria doesn’t want April - the mother they haven’t seen for some time - to find out about her pregnancy. However Clara, compelled by financial difficulties and the responsibilities of having a baby in the house, decides to call her. Abril arrives with the intention of helping her daughters, but we soon understand why Valeria would have preferred her to stay away.

BIOGRAPHY

After making a number of short films, commercials and videos, in 2009 Michel Franco directed Daniel y Ana, his first feature film, selected for the Directors’ Fortnight at the Cannes Festival, among other events.

His later works are A los ojos (2013) and Chronic (2015), winner in Cannes of the Best Screenplay Award. Las hijas de Abril won the Un Certain Regard Jury Prize at the last Cannes Festival.
