However, her sudden death makes Farid frustrated. To escape from this unfamiliar situation, he clings to anyone he encounters outside home to make this loneliness bearable, but he does not know how to communicate and the situation gets worse each time.

The Son will be competing with 13 more movies including “Blue Heart” by Miguel Coyula from Cuba, “The Time of Indifference” by Leonardo Guerra Seragnoli from Italy, “The Inner Glow” by Andres Eduardo Rodriguez and Luis Alejandro Rodriguez from Venezuela, and “The Women” by Nobuteru Uchida from Japan.
