“Our Son” paints a touching portrait of love, loss, and the complexities of family in modern times.

Nicky and Gabriel, a once-joyful couple united by their shared dream of fatherhood, face the bittersweet unraveling of their marriage. Eight years after welcoming their son into their loving arms, the spark in their relationship has faded, leaving them lost in a sea of unspoken hurts and evolving desires. During the emotional turbulence, their son, caught in the crossfire of their dissolving union, becomes a silent witness to their fracturing connection.

As the legal battle for custody unfolds, Nicky and Gabriel grapple with their personal demons and the conflicting emotions that come with letting go. Nicky, struggling with guilt and insecurity, must confront the harsh reality that perhaps his vision of family no longer aligns with his son's well-being. Gabriel, brimming with paternal tenderness and determination, fights not just for himself but for the future he believes their child deserves.

Through intricate performances and tender moments, the film delves into the complexities of fatherhood beyond the traditional mold. It challenges societal expectations and celebrates the multifaceted nature of love within a family. We see Nicky, despite his flaws, navigate the heartache of relinquishing a part of himself while recognizing the selfless strength it takes to prioritize his son's happiness. Gabriel, in turn, emerges as an idol of stability and unwavering devotion, showcasing the unyielding power of a father's love.

"Our Son" is more than just a story about a dissolving marriage; it's a testament to the resilience of the human spirit and the unwavering bonds that transcend legal battles and societal judgment. It is a poignant reminder that sometimes, the truest act of love lies in understanding when to let go, knowing that letting another take the helm might be the greatest gift you can give your child.
