Synopsis

The film that has seen Greta Fernández’s star rise, A Thief’s Daughter witnesses her deliver a highly awarded, career-defining lead performance, next to her real-life father Eduard Fernández (Truman SFF16, Perfect Strangers). Echoing directors like Ken Loach and the Dardenne brothers, director Belén Funes brings a fresh, fearless imagining to the social realism formula in this poignant character study of 22-year-old mother, Sara.



Caring for her baby and her younger brother whilst trying to maintain her relationship with her partner, Sara dreams of a blissful family life in Barcelona. But when her troubled father suddenly reappears in her life after his release from jail, the young woman is forced to make some difficult decisions: supporting her father or prioritising the welfare of her young family?



Struggling with these big questions as well as the everyday challenges of childcare, work and housing, A Thief’s Daughter is a moving and courageous exploration of family, duty and strength when life keeps presenting you with seemingly insurmountable hurdles.
