The Commitment

201195 minsSpanish - Subtitles: English

Federico (50), shaped by a generation that believed it possible to bring about a utopia, tries to survive the changes of the 21st Century, but is trapped in a dead-end street. Herman, his friend and revolutionary companion – mutilated by war injuries – finds a way to express his ideals, struggles and hopes through painting. With his young son, Daniel, he retires to the countryside, where Flora, a pragmatic and generous country woman, helps with the household and the raising of his son. Herman dies from a long-standing illness. Federico, forced by his friend, made a death-bed promise to care for Daniel, now an orphan. Hope is not a utopia that is reached through a specific action. Federico learns at Daniel’s side that the future, like love, is not conquered but fashioned day.
