Messi and Maud

Travelling through the breathtaking landscapes of Chile, Maud tries to get her life back on track after it is confirmed to her that she will never have children.

Maud and Frank are on holiday in Chile. Their relationship is fragile and so is Maud. After many years of trying, it is now time to face the fact that they will never have children. However, Maud is in denial. After a huge fight with Frank she runs off and sets out on a road trip through Chile that will see her travel through pain and grief before eventually making peace with herself.
