BORN AND BRED

“An emotionally stunning journey of a father's return to his senses.” - Variety Being a family man is the most important thing for Santiago, a successful interior designer living with his wife and daughter in their picturesque home in Argentina. However, their tranquil existence is shattered after a horrific accident. Santiago finds himself working in the rugged surrounds of a small airfield in Patagonia. With his new friend, Robert, he spends his days drinking and hunting. Soon, he learns that escaping his inner demons is not as easy as escaping his past. Born and Bred is the latest feature from filmmaker Pablo Trapero, following his multiple award-winning 2004 feature, Rolling Family (MIFF 05).
