A young middle-class man has asked for the day off work to celebrate his mother’s birthday, but he needs some flour to bake her a cake. Outside the store is a long line of people desperate to buy food and other basics. Eventually, their patience runs short. Inspired by a true story, Harina won a Silver Caravel at the Huelva Ibero-American Film Festival and got a Special Mention at the Berlin Short Film Festival. A heart-wrenching story about the lines we will cross to survive.
