Description:
Leading its titular heroine through unexpected twists and turns, Petra tells a dramatic story of buried secrets and lies.

Petra doesn't know who her father is. Her entire life, this information has been hidden from her. After the death of her mother, she embarks on a search that leads her to Jaume, a famous artist and a powerful, ruthless man. On her path to uncovering the truth, Petra also meets Jaume's son, Lucas, as well as Marisa, his mother and Jaume's wife. That is when the story of these characters begins to intertwine in a spiral of malice, family secrets and violence that drives them all to the edge. But fate's cruel logic is derailed by a twist that opens a path to hope and redemption.

"There is more than one theme to Petra. Each viewer will define the themes for themselves. But identity is important. As are fate and the conflict between good and evil. A tragic vein runs through the entire plot. If I had to summarise the subject of Petra, I would say it is a film about search and redemption." (Jaime Rosales)
