In the movie Confessions, the peace and harmony of an affluent family in Mexico City is shattered by the disappearance of their young daughter. Hours later, the captor communicates to tell them that he doesn't want money, but a face-to-face confession: someone in the family has a secret and his requirement to free the girl will be to reveal it. Overnight, the darkest secrets of the family will come out one by one.

"Thank you very much to everyone who is here, we are very happy," said Carlos Carrera in front of the audience that attended the Teatro Mariano Matamoros to see Confessions.

“It's a film we made with a lot of love,” the filmmaker added.

The young actor Emilio Treviño asked the audience to "get carried away by the film": "Cinema is supposed to be uncomfortable, life is sometimes uncomfortable."
