Escaping her overwhelming life in the city, thirty-year old Natalia finds refuge in the small village of La Escapa, deep in the Spanish countryside. In a rustic derelict house, flanked by a wild and clumsy dog at her side, the young woman aims to rebuild anew. When confronted with the hostility of her landlord and the distrust of the local villagers, Nat finds herself giving in to an unsettling sexual proposal from her neighbuor Andreas.
From this strange and conflicting encounter sparks a devouring and obsessive passion that will consume Nat fully, forcing her to reconsider the woman she thought she was.
Based on the eponymous best selling novel by Sara Mesa, UN AMOR is a striking account of existential doubt and the transformative power of carnal desire, exploring the subversive nature of gender roles.

" A splendidly drawn relationship between two outsiders who are also apparently two opposites. "
