One of the most acclaimed films at the Cannes Film Festival, and the fifth feature from internationally renowned director Pablo Trapero (BORN AND BRED, FAMILIA RODANTE), LION’S DEN is a powerful and unflinching emotional drama, charting one mother's struggle to raise her child in extraordinary circumstances and her compelling fight for their survival and freedom.

Julia (Martina Gusman, BORN AND BRED) awakes in her apartment one morning, bruised and bloodied, to discover a horrific scene: her partner Nahuel stabbed to death and their lover Ramiro (Rodrigo Santoro, CHE, LOST) severely injured, though still alive. Unable to offer an explanation for the course of events, Julia is quickly arrested for murder - pending trial. Denied parole due to the severity of the crime and now found to be pregnant, Julia is transferred to a secure wing for mothers and their babies, in one of Argentina's most notorious prisons.

Befriended by a fellow inmate, Marta (Laura Garcia), Julia must come to terms not only with her new life of incarceration but with the impending birth of her son and motherhood behind bars.

Shot entirely on location, largely in Batan Penitentiary, Buenos Aires, LION'S DEN is a gripping and affecting film, featuring a breathtaking, award-winning performance by Martina Gusman.
