Cría Cuervos is a haunting family drama seen through the eyes of an eight year old girl named Ana who, as an adult, recounts her troubled childhood. Convinced that her father’s infidelity was the cause of her mother’s death, she believes that her own actions were the cause of her father’s demise. Interacting with what she believes is the spirit of her deceased mother, we witness Ana’s heartbreaking attempts to deal with the loss and her guilt (Klaus Ming September 2016).
