Having fled Colombia after her husband was murdered, an environmental lawyer rebuilds her life in Toronto with her tempestuous daughter, only to risk losing everything when her traumatic past re-surfaces.
The film begins in suspense, unlike the tenderness of the title. Aurora, a lawyer who works at a Columbian environmental NGO, defects to Canada when her husband is murdered, and all the tender memories of him become a nightmare. When time passes, and she finally seems to have settled in a safe place with a mundane life, she discovers someone who looks just like the cousin involved in her husband’s murder, and this unrest shakes her life to the core. This film could have been a crime genre or a drama focused on psychology, but the director surprises the audience by completely changing course every time the film comes to a stop that would typically be filled with genre-related mannerisms. Rather than telling a story of cathartic release, the director focuses on the emotions the heroine must endure daily. (Sung MOON)
