Tamara and the Ladybug / Tamara y la Catarina
Dir : Lucia Carerras / Mexico / 107 mins Synopsis
Tamara is an almost forty-year-old woman suffering from mental disability left alone by her brother. Despite her new situation, she continues with her daily routine, even if her life is rapidly thrown into disarray. One day, Tamara’s fascination with ladybugs leads her to stray away from her neighborhood. Then she finds a baby girl who seems to be all alone. Well-meaning but without any regard for the consequences, she decides to take her. Mrs. Meche, an old woman who lives alone in the same district discovers the baby in Tamara’s house and becomes rapidly involved. The film depicts the story of these two women who have become faded in their loneliness and how they will find in each other a space where, rather than being outcasts, they feel finally needed.
