18 years after she was coldly informed of her newborn's sudden death, Ana still believes that the infant was stolen from her. Dismissed by others as paranoid and fuelled by a mother’s determination, she summons the strength for one last battle against the police, the hospital bureaucracy and even her own family to uncover the truth.
A compelling take on oppression, motherhood, and a personal quest for truth and justice, the film offers a sophisticated and convincing character study with moments of high tension. Inspired by true events, Stitches combines elements of a thriller and a drama to tell the powerful story of a heroic woman who fights alone against a cruel and oppressive system. Premiered at this year’s Berlinale.
