Synopsis

Un Secreto de Esperanza
Featuring the final screen appearance of Mexican screen legend Katy Jurado, director Leopol Laborde's touching tale of friendship offers an affecting study on the influence others can have on our lives. As a rebellious teen growing up in Mexico in the early 1980s, Jorge (Imanol Landeta) struck up an unlikely friendship with reclusive senior citizen Esperanza (Jurado) after sneaking into what he thought was an abandoned house. As Jorge seeks refuge from his everyday trouble at home and school in the company of the wise old stranger, their bond strengthens and Esperanza teaches the young troublemaker the value of life and the wonders of his Mexican heritage. Devastated when Esperanza passes away shortly thereafter, young Jorge takes her wisdom and attempts to make the best of his situation in life. Watching the news fifteen years later, Jorge notices a picture of his old friend as the reporter mournfully recounts the anniversary of the death of the first Latin-American woman to win the Nobel Prize in literature. Taking a journey into the past upon visiting Esperanza's memorial, Jorge slowly begins to rediscover the valuable lessons taught to him by his long lost friend. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
