Teenage kicks.

This moving, gentle and insightful coming-of-age drama centres on young mother Paloma and her pre-teen son Hector, holidaying together in an off-season motel with only each other for company. Enter young teenage girl Jazmin, who inadvertently drives a wedge between them when she catches Hector's eye and quickly becomes a catalyst for change. With its deadpan delivery and minimalist approach, this playfully entertaining, beautifully observed vignette on mother-son relationships is astonishingly astute and utterly charming throughout.
