Description: A death in the family brings a man back to his family and his hometown in this drama. After his brother Alex (David Recha) goes missing under hazy circumstances, Pau (David Selvas) gets the bad news that Alex has died after a successful suicide attempt. Pau travels to the village in Spain's Pyrenees mountains where he was born to break the sad news to his mother Merce (Alicia Oroxco); hoping to spare her feelings at a difficult time, he tells her that Alex was killed in an auto accident. As Merce mourns the death of her son, she and Pau set out to find Alex's friends and acquaintances and tell them of his sad fate. In their travels, they encounter Sara (Marieta Orozco), Alex's girlfriend, who planned to move away to the city with him; Emil (Luis Hostalot), an engineer who will be putting a highway through the town; Marta (Nathalie Boutefeu), Emil's daughter; and Toni (Juan Marquez), one of Emil's co-workers. Circumstances bring Pau and Marta together again when Emil disappears, and Marta finds herself searching for her father. Pau I El Seu Germa was the second feature from director Marc Recha, who won international acclaim with his debut, El Arbol De Las Cerezas.~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide
