Baby

BABY is a dark fairytale about an addict mother who, in desperation, sells her newborn to traffickers. She quickly regrets the decision and ventures into an eerie forest to get him back. Inspired by Guillermo del Toro and the Brothers Grimm, Basque filmmaker Juanma Bajo Ulloa constructs a world that is equal parts grotesque and beautiful. This macabre tale is told entirely without dialogue and stars Rosie Day (OUTLANDER), Harriet Sansom Harris (DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES), and Natalia Tena (GAME OF THRONES, HARRY POTTER).
