a.k.a. “La Restauración”
SANTA BARBARA Intl Film Festival
A 50 year old manchild running out of ways to sustain his pleasure-driven lifestyle hatches a highly-questionable plan to sell his mother’s historic house–without her knowing. To keep her clueless, he builds a replica of her own bedroom, and tells her that the house is off-limits while it is being restored to its former glory. Remarkably, it is the inevitable failure of his cruel and outrageous illusion that might just give him a chance at restoring his own humanity.
