WINNER 2015 NEW FILMMAKERS FROM SPAIN “THE WILD, THE CHILD & THE MIRACLE”
Dawn, a young woman, arrives on Christmas Eve at a group home claiming that “the boy”, a child found in the wilderness, is her long lost son. She will try to connect with him, under the supervision of Nurse Jeanette, but the kid is wild and feral, and Dawn ultimately gets attacked, bit and spit on by “the boy”. Dawn will not only have to win the love of this feral kid back, but also prove that she is his real mother, and that she is fit to take care of “the boy” after all.
