Violeta at Last
Title: Violeta at Last
Director: Hilda Hidalgo
Script: Hilda Hidalgo
Country: Costa Rica | Mexico
Year: 2017


At the age of 72, Violeta has decided to learn how to swim. It is just one of the decisions she takes at a stage in life in which making changes is somehow more definitive. And there are other, bigger, decisions — on one hand, getting divorced from the man she was married to her whole life, and on the other, holding on to her house, no matter what the cost, against the wishes of her children, who are hoping for a sure sale.
