So Much Tenderness

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.
