And baby makes five. One too many. The dysfunctional triad of April and her two daughters, Clara and Valeria, begins to unravel when 17-year-old Valeria becomes pregnant by her boyfriend, Mateo, and flaunts her triumph before her jealous family. Moves and countermoves explode – motherhood becomes less a refuge of caring than an arena of savage fighting, bribery and outright theft. This chilling Mexican drama, prizewinner at Cannes, asks us who can save the baby in a world of betrayal.
