Amaia has just become a mother, and the challenge is even more significant than she imagined. So, when her partner has to leave for several weeks because of his job, she decides to spend time with her parents in a lovely coastal village in the Basque Country and hopefully share the responsibility of looking after her baby. However, she forgot that even when one becomes a parent, one never stops being a daughter.
Tender-hearted and acutely observed, Alauda Ruiz de Azúa’s debut Lullaby is an absorbing if flawed mother-daughter drama." Jonathan Holland, Screendaily
