The Tallahassee Unified Family Court (Florida) specialises in judicial cases involving minors. It is the only court in the United States that deals with matters relating to children and parents. The families are summoned to this court when accused of abuse, abandon or negligence in regard to the minors. The objective of this court according to the Law is to reunite families as quickly and safely as possible. The movie takes its inspiration from the words of James Baldwin: “If one really wants to know how justice is administered in a country, one goes to the unprotected and listens to their testimony”.

BIOGRAPHY

Antonio Méndez Esparza (Madrid, 1976) has developed his career as a director in the United States.

His first feature film, Aquí y allá (Here and There, 2012), premiered at the Festival de Cannes, where it received the Semaine de la Critique Grand Prix. It was also shown in Horizontes Latinos at San Sebastian. The second, La vida y nada más (Life and Nothing More, 2017), competed in the Official Selection of San Sebastian Festival, where it garnered the FIPRESCI prize.
