The Wanted Child / El Hijo Buscado

After ten fruitless years spent trying to adopt through the official channels, Alvaro and Ana, both now entering middle age, have reached the point of desperation. After yet another setback, they decide their only recourse is to buy a baby on the black market. As Alvaro sets out on the perilous journey to the Brazilian border, leaving Ana to wait in trepidation, the mood darkens and events soon start to spiral out of control. A brooding, terrifying thriller, which lays bare the fault lines of a society in which money and privilege can prove powerless to fulfil the demands of the heart.
