A well-known artist sacrifices her career and marriage to help her son, crippled in an accident, lead a normal life again. Contrary to expectations her son is cured. But when he grows up his gratitude to her threatens to destroy their relationship and she asks him to leave. VALÉRIA is not a mawkish tearjerker, however, but a melodrama in the best sense: moving, sentimental, but never kitschy. Sílvia Quer tells the story in suspenseful scenes of compelling beauty. On account of its measured tempo and cultural independence, this Catalan TV movie can hold its own against large English and American productions.
