Berlinale

3 / Tres

Synopsis
For Rodolfo, life at home feels empty and cold, as if he doesn't belong. Meanwhile, his first wife, Graciela and their teenage daughter, Ana, are living through defining moments in their lives. Subtly, Rodolfo will try to slip back into the place he once had next to them but walked away from ten years ago. 3 is a comedy about three people and the absurd fate to which they are doomed: being a family.

Director’s note
3 is a film about selfishness and the pursuit of redemption. It is about growing up and about those moments in which, although unnoticed, our personality takes a specific shape. It is a story about second chances and the fear they awake, the fear of failure.
