There are things we get over, things we simply get through, and things that leave us no recourse other than to shatter everything we know. It is in the latter, devastating condition that Maud, the protagonist of Dutch director Marleen Jonkman’s piercing feature debut, finds herself.
Maud and Frank are on holiday in Chile. After years of trying to conceive, Frank is ready to give up on the idea of parenthood. Maud, however, cannot let it go. Following one final quarrel on the subject, she abandons Frank to travel alone, without destination, over Chile’s serpentine topography.
Maud attempts to reinvent her identity with every new encounter, giving different names, nationalities, and personal narratives to different strangers. One day, she catches a ride with a vulgar, sexually aggressive trucker and his young son, Diego. In a moment of desperation, Maud flees the trucker with Diego in tow. The pair forge a fleeting yet fierce bond, becoming a sort of surrogate family of two.

Marleen Jonkman, Netherlands, 2017, 92 min. Spanish & Dutch spoken, Dutch subtitles. With Rifka Lodeizen, Guido Pollemans, Koke Santa Ana, Rodrigo Soto, Paola Lattus.
