ELIECER'S SONG (In development)
Original Title: El son de Eliecer
In coproduction with Gracia Cine - Colombia.
Directed by Joan Gomez
The lonely life of Eliécer, a sexagenarian piper from a coastal town, is suddenly interrupted by an old acquaintance that leaves two surprises and one mission on the doorstep of his house: the first surprise, the death of his father; the second surprise, Esperanza, an eight-year-old girl, who turns out to be his step-sister. The mission is not only painful but also incomprehensible, to take the girl to her mother, the woman who abandoned her when she was just a newborn to begin a new life in Bogota.
A place that only exists on maps for Eliecer.
