Action thriller directed by Norberto López Amado ('La decisión de Julia') and written by Jorge Guerricaechevarría. Laura (Belén Rueda) is a woman desperate to find her sister Sara, who disappeared long ago in the jungles of the Democratic Republic of Congo while working as a missionary. Neither the NGOs with which she collaborated nor the Spanish Embassy managed to find her back then, but a photo found in a mining town in eastern Congo puts back the track on her disappearance. So, Laura decides to undertake a dangerous journey to the Congolese capital, Kinshasa, to find her sister and will not stop until they are together again. But along the way she will be forced to challenge the warlords and discover the bitter truth of the ins and outs of international powers in the Third World. The production of the film is done by Telecinco Cinema and Ikiru Films. Hide full plot... Show full plot

Trivia El cuaderno de Sara

Belen Rueda stars in 'Los ojos de Julia' (2010), while director Norberto López Amado was the director of 'La decisión de Julia' (2015). Prior to the writing of the script, Belén Rueda, the producers and writer Jorge Guerricaechevarría went on a trip to Congo in order to gather information. They travelled as backpackers, and the actress found the experience very useful to prepare the character of Laura. During the trip to the Congo, the team talked to various NGO to know the real situation in which the country lives.
