Synopsis

A successful doctor desperate to experience motherhood, Malena journeys to a remote province in northern Argentina to adopt a baby illicitly. An outsider in this isolated community where many live hand to mouth, Malena is emotionally unprepared for the additional financial demands made by the child’s biological family. But she is determined to take home the newborn, whatever the cost. Lerman skillfully lays bare the social, psychological and ethical complexities at the heart of his harrowing drama.
