On an island off the coast of Guadalupe, two sisters, Myriam and Vanessa, have planned to stay for a few days in the family house, where the sweet memory of their grandmother is still vivid. But Vanessa is not aware that a particular guest is expected for lunch and when she catches sight of her father coming, a cold and quiet man that she didn’t want to see anymore, it is too late to escape the confrontation. Around the table, unsaid things, provocations and blunders will lead each individual to face their own ambiguous feelings. TOURMENTS D’AMOUR (TORMENTS OF LOVE) is the winner of the Jury and Audience Awards for Best Narrative Feature at the 21st Cine Las Americas International Film Festival.
