José Ignacio Navarro /
Drama / All Audience


Roberto is 94 years old and lives in the Hope Asylum. Today is a great day for him because it is the birthday of his best friend, Eulalio; everything must go well, but before thinking about parties, he has to take medication, will Roberto be able to take all of his medicine before the birthday ends?

Director`s Vision

Hope Asylum is an acid glance about old age, overmedication and loneliness. It tells about the passing of time, the briefness of life and unfinished dreams. It is a small story told with a complex and traditional animation technique.
