In this ferociously unique visual stunner of a film, Casanova dares to play with the parallels between a toxic mother-son relationship and the North Korean regime, offering the legendary Ángela Molina an iconic performance as the toxic mother.

Lili and Mateo are mother and son who have a profound relationship of mutual dependence. The indulge in their suffocating reality until one of them is diagnosed with a fatal illness. The mere idea of separation causes them to develop their darkest and most toxic version of themselves.

LA PIETÀ is about power, and submission then to the extreme; about the capacity and need human begins have to control their own creation, other people, and even an entire country. A universal story about how to separate ourselves from our roots: abandoning everything to evolve or to save ourselves, even knowing that the darkest part of us we leave behind stays with us, in our DNA.
