Directed by Federico Hidalgo; with Vanessa Bauche, Noel Burton, Susana Salazar. (2003, 100 min., Bilingual with English subtitles).
Norman, a quiet, middle-aged college teacher from Montreal, embarks on the adventure of his life when he goes to Mexico to propose to Gladys, a young woman he met through an Internet agency. Gladys, played by Vanessa Bauche (AMORES PERROS, EL PATRULLERO) accepts Norman, but impulsively requires him to bring her widowed mother, Fernanda (Susana Salazar – AL NORTE DEL CORAZ ÓN ), with them to Canada. In the emotional showdowns that follow, Norman, Gladys, and Fernanda must find the courage to overcome great distance, foolish desire, and the obstinate fear of solitude.
