A Caolha

This short film is based on the Brazilian short story "A caolha", by Júlia Lopes de Almeida. It is the story of a woman and her son, who over the years begin to live in conflict due to a problem that the woman has, she is stupid. As he grows up, his son, Antonico, develops more and more hatred and disgust for his mother, since he has always suffered a lot from people's judgments because he is the son of this woman. Antonico can not imagine that he was the one who pierced his mother's eye when he was very small with a fork, a truth that comes to the surface at the end of the short.
