Jury Statement: The film is a magnificent portrait of two female characters, removed far from any stereotypes, who struggle in the face of adversity, finding very original methods and daring solutions to the problems they face as individuals and mothers. In a society that still allows women who are the sole providers of their families to live in borderline misery, even in the so-called developed countries, the film uses humour and intelligence to convey the two women’s ability to find bonds that reach beyond their differences.

There are some very good surprises here!!! To check the official information go here.
