Paloma and Hector are best friends; they're also mother and teenage son. On their annual summer vacation, their unique relationship is tested when Hector meets Jazmin, an assertive young woman his own age who vies for his affections. Dreading the inevitable, Paloma attempts to maintain her position, but room-service milkshakes with his mom, no matter how cool she is, can't compete with the promise of a romantic encounter, and Hector begins to withdraw more frequently to Jazmin's hotel room down the hall.

In his hilarious and touching third feature, acclaimed Mexican filmmaker Fernando Eimbcke explores the growing pains of parenthood and adolescence and unfurls in small, brilliant moments his characters' bumpy road to self-realization. With his pitch-perfect cast, Eimbcke presents a story both reassuringly familiar and pleasantly unexpected.

82 minutes | In Spanish with English subtitles
