El Reloj de Paula

It is difficult to determine what triggers a situation of abuse in the family environment. But detecting the indicators is basic and vital to avoid suffering to the victims. El Reloj de Paula invites reflection on child abuse within the family nucleus and the consequences it leaves on the people who suffer from it.

Inspired by various real experiences, “El Reloj de Paula” is a film that is developed with the aspiration of becoming an audiovisual material for social awareness. 

Childhood is our most precious asset and we must work to protect thousands of boys and girls who suffer violence in silence.
