Julio Cesar is almost forty years old and still lives with his mother, a Colombian woman with a compelling personality. The pair of them share practically everything: a little house on the river filled with memories, the small amount of money earned working for a local drug dealer, a passion for evenings of salsa and merengue. An existence on the margins lived with love, at once symbiotic and oppressive, whose precarious equilibrium risks being undermined with the arrival of Ines, a young Colombian who has just made her first journey as a cocaine “mule.” Between desire and jealousy the situation rapidly gets out of hand, to the point where Julio will find himself taking drastic measures, on a painful journey that will take him for the first time to the land of his origins.

Enrico Maria Artale (Rome, 1984) graduated in Philosophy and Directing from the Italian National Film School. His first feature-length film, “Il terzo tempo”, was presented in 2013 at the 70th Venice FF and received the First Feature Film Pasinetti Award. His documentary film, “Saro” (2018), was awarded as Best Documentary at the Turin Film Festival and was nominated for a David di Donatello in the same year. In the following years, Enrico Maria Artale directed some international TV series, among which Romulus (SKY) and Django (Sky and Canal+).
His latest film, “El paraíso”, won three awards at the 80th Venice Film Festival in the section Orizzonti: Best Actress, Best Screenplay and ARCA CinemaGiovani Award - Best Italian Film.
