The Influence / Pedro Aguilera

Life goes on and things evolve. Sometimes the changes are slow, imperceptible, sometimes abrupt and visible. But everything is transformed, inexorably. A fragile, lost woman is crushed by the problems of her daily existence. Her belongings being confiscated, and her boutique shut down, the future of her two children becomes uncertain.Their vitality contrasts sharply with their mother’s apathy.Gradually, she sinks into deep depression. The children realize their mother lacks the necessary maturity and strength to face all these problems.They will have to act.
