So Much Tenderness
Directed by Lina Rodriguez
Canada | 118 min | 2022
Having fled Colombia after her husband was murdered, an environmental lawyer rebuilds her life in Toronto with her tempestuous daughter, only to risk losing everything when her traumatic past re-surfaces.
So Much Tenderness follows Aurora (Noëlle Schönwald), a Colombian environmental lawyer who is forced to flee her native country when her husband (Juan Pablo Cruz) is murdered. With the help of a young couple (Deragh Campbell and Kazik Radwanski), she illegally crosses into Canada from the U.S. inside the trunk of a car, and is forced to start her life from scratch as a refugee. Six years later, she leads a seemingly normal life in Toronto with her tempestuous daughter Lucía (Natalia Aranguren), until her estranged cousin Edgar (Francisco Zaldua), who was a suspect in her husband’s murder, resurfaces, threatening everything she’s built.
