Matias is a curly-haired moppet who likes to pretend he’s Superman. When his Mami, Laura, doesn’t pick him up after a birthday party, a nice lady takes him home. But catastrophe strikes; Laura lies on the apartment floor, bloody and beaten. REFUGIADO depicts a harrowing flight from domestic abuse, as Laura seeks to protect them from her husband. The uncomprehending boy senses his mother’s panic and wishes he could help her. After the police escort them to a safe house, Matias makes a friend. But Laura is used to being on her own. While trying to get a restraining order against her husband, she runs off with the boy. As they hunker down in another supposedly safe place, she receives a flower delivery. Her terror increases: her husband knows where they are. But there’s one place Laura hasn’t tried to hide, though it means revisiting her difficult past. For Matias’s sake, she must go. (In Spanish with subtitles) – B.B.
