AMIGOMÍO

A father, an unemployed academic, who hardly suits to be a hero, is meant to take his 8-year-old son from the injust regime in Argentina into freedom, in order to guarantee a better life for him. AMIGOMÍO is a road movie. In two ways. The story of escape and a journey through inner landscapes. The present and the past connect, political commitment meets poetic realism. AMIGOMÍO is a film of pictures. Pictures that approach you like a punch in the face, pictures that overwhelm and free you at the same time.
