But she missed something - a mysterious photograph will lead to an unexpected outcome which will remind us that sometimes the greatest love stories are hidden in the smallest places. “In her feature film debut, Mexican writer/direct Mariana Chenillo has woven a genuine charmer, tartly funny and irreverent yet warm and poignant - a testament to enduring love.” - Toronto Star
