Directed by Diego Luna (star of Y Tu Mam√° También), this is a charming comedy about a boy who believes he’s a man. Just released from psychiatric hospital and unwilling to talk, nine-year-old Abel moves back home to his mother and two siblings.

After a few days he begins speaking in an oddly mature way, and it soon becomes clear that Abel thinks he is the father of his family! He soon takes on fatherly roles – from dispensing advice to his older sister, helping his brother with his homework and doing household chores – until his real father returns from the US looking to take his place in the family.
