"This glorious 2013 debut feature by Mexican writer-director Claudia Sainte-Luce takes one of the most shopworn melodramatic premises and makes it feel spontaneous and new."

THE AMAZING CATFISH is a heartwarming tale of two unique women who meet while recuperating in a hospital. Claudia, who has been alone most of her life, is a product demonstrator in her twenties, has been admitted to the hospital for appendicitis. Martha, who has an endless lust for life, is an HIV-positive mother of four rambunctious and imaginative children. Martha finds solace when she meets the younger woman, Claudia, and quickly the two build a strong relationship.

When it comes time to leave, Martha invites Claudia to come stay with her family. Reluctant at first, Martha's family eventually gives new meaning to Claudia's life, and as Martha gets sicker with each passing day, Claudia's bond with her children grows stronger.

In Spanish with English subtitles.
