The Omission

A very young girl moves to and inhospitable city in the south of Argentina with her boyfriend and her daughter with the sole purpose of saving money. The plan they have together will suddenly be put into crisis, since she’s emotionally overwhelmed and unable to react to her own pain. She knows she is shouting, but she can’t hear herself.
