A man goes about his daily business, running mundane errands, and then for no apparent reason commits suicide, leaving his wife Elvira shocked and mystified. Another man, Ulisses, is robbed of the wallet in which he keeps the only photo of his murdered wife and daughter; he makes up his mind to track down the thief and kill him. But fate brings Elvira and Ulisses together, and the possibility of a new beginning for both beckons…

" The Searches" is the second feature from director José Luis Valle, whose debut Workers premiered at the 2013 Berlinale and won Best Mexican Feature at Guadalajara. For "The Searches", Valle assembled a cast of top Mexican stars including Arcélia Ramirez ("Cilantro y perejil"), Gabino Rodríguez ("A tiro de piedra") and Gustavo Sánchez Parra ("Amores perros"). With a lovely visual economy (and an economy of means – incredibly, the film was shot in a mere seven days with a four-person crew), Valle brings to the screen some of the most intriguing and touching scenes of any film this year.
