A-listed at the Cannes, Sundance, San Sebastián and London International film festivals, and winner of the Horizontes Award at San Sebastián, Abel, released on DVD from Artificial Eye on 25th April 2011, is the fictional directorial debut of acclaimed Mexican actor Diego Luna (Milk, Y Tu Mamá También), executive-produced by John Malkovich and Gael García Bernal.

To everyone's surprise Abel starts to speak again, and seems to believe he is now the head of the family. As he oversees his siblings' homework and interrogates his sister's new boyfriend, no-one dares challenge this miracle. Then, one day, a man shows up at the door: his father...
