The absurdist dramedy follows a mother who wants to hold onto the image of her little boy, Pepito — even though he's all grown up. This all comes to a head when she accompanies him to confession, where he has a panic attack, forcing the mother and son to confront their shared identity crisis. This universal story is a love letter to mothers everywhere, told through the lens of the Latino experience. Written by Isaac Garza and directed by Eman Esfandi.
EMAN ESFANDI (DIRECTOR): Raised in a household with an Ecuadoran mother and Iranian father, Esfandi seeks to share the truths of growing up among these different cultures to show how unique they are — and also how similiar we all can be.
ISAAC GARZA (WRITER): Along with performing as a resident improsiver at an Austin comedy club, the Texas-born Garza writes and directs short films ranging in genre, from dark comedy to tense drama, that all carry heart.
