Dir. Rodrigo Ruiz Patterson. Mexico, 2020, 85 mins. With Adrián Rossi, Sophie Alexander–Katz, Fabián Corres. 13-year-old Rodrigo is a solitary teenager who finds solace in his intimate relationship with his mother, Valeria. She is his best friend, his protector, and his entire world. When her new boyfriend comes to live in their small house on the outskirts of Mexico City, however, Rodrigo finds his domain completely disrupted. He must decide if he should accept his new family or fight back and hurt the person he loves the most.

Rodrigo, un adolescente solitario, es rey en el mundo íntimo que tiene con su madre. Todo cambia cuando ella lleva a vivir a su nuevo novio a su pequeña casa en los márgenes de la Ciudad de México. Rodrigo se debate entre aceptar a la nueva familia o recuperar el trono, aún a costa de la felicidad de quien más quiere.
