Solitary Fragments

by Jaime Rosales

Solitary Fragments


Thirty-five-year-old single mother Adela leaves behind her pastoral Basque setting and moves to Madrid. She takes an unfulfilling but adequate job to support her new life, in which everything is centered around her infant son. A terrorist attack on a bus will shatter her life and she will have to eventually accept returning to a new daily routine ... Antonia owns a small supermarket. The handsome widow leads a quiet life centered around work, her boyfriend Manolo and her beloved daughters, Inés, Nieves and Helena. The already tense relationship between the three daughters is further complicated when Helena asks to borrow money from her mother to buy a new flat.


Writer-director Jaime Rosales made his debut feature in 2003 with »Las Horas del Día« (The Hours Of The Day), presented at the Director's Fortnight in Cannes, where it won the FIPRESCI Prize. After beginning his career as a screenwriter for film and television, Rosales received a grant to attend the International Film and Television School (EICTV) in San Antonio de los Baños, Cuba. From there, he went on to study at the Australian Film Television and Radio School (AFTRS) in Sydney. Rosales, born in Barcelona in 1970, founded the production company Fresdeval Films in 2001.
