Leonor wants to leave home but she doesn’t dare tell her mother. Estrella doesn’t want her daughter to go, but she isn’t able to keep her by her side. Mother and daughter will have to face a new time in their lives in which the world they share is wavering. JOURNEY TO A MOTHER’S room is a film about the ties that tightly bind a mother and a daughter, so intimate and delicate they can easily tangle and trap them.
