Overworked, single mother, Silvia Paz, often feels as though the weight of the world is on her shoulders. At home she deals with a terminally ill mother who refuses treatment and a sister who doesn’t equally bear the burden of responsibilities, plus a son newly misbehaving in school. At work she’s under investigation for the misappropriation of public funds due to no fault of her own. However, despite working hard to defend the actions of her department, her loyalty is questioned continuously by a manager who pits her commitment to her family against work obligations. To boot, a budding romantic relationship only puts more constraints on the limited time she has for family. Silvia lives in a world of constant uncertainty as she questions her success as a mother, daughter, and working professional. No matter how hard she tries, she cannot help feeling like she’s falling short. LITIGANTE is a film in which protagonist Silvia Paz asks the age-old question, “Can you have it all, and at what cost?” (In Spanish with subtitles) — R.R.
