Leonera (2008)

Sobre o filme

Julia awakens in her apartment surrounded by the blood-soaked bodies of Ramiro and Nahuel. Ramiro is still alive; Nahuel is dead. Both, in a confused manner, had concurrently been her lovers. Julia is pregnant from one of them. She is sent to a prison unit for mothers and pregnant women who have been sentenced. Two characters enter her life. One is Marta, a fellow prisoner who raised two children in prison and who becomes Julia`s guide and advisor; the other is Sofia, her own mother, an ambiguous character Julia meets again after a great many years. The court proceedings that identify the death of Nahuel identify two persons as possibly guilty: Julia and Ramiro, both incarcerated in different prisons. Julia`s baby is born and named Tomás. Julia decides to visit Ramiro in the male unit where he is jailed. In court, Ramiro`s testimony will be crucial to determine Julia`s sentence.
