The award winning film Alba is a tender coming of age story following the troubled childhood of an eleven-year-old girl as she attempts to find her way through adolescence. Painfully shy, Alba passes most of her time in silence, preferring solitude and the company of small animals. Alba lives with her divorced and ailing mother, until her mother’s collapse sends her to hospital. Sent to live with her eccentric and solitary father, whom she hardly knows, the film follows their relationship as they slowly and tentatively get to know each other.
