Paulo wrote the story but the film was directed by Mar Targarona who served as producer for both Contratiempo and El Cuerpo. When these two artists collaborate, the result is simply stupendous. Boy Missing begins when a boy, injured and disoriented, is discovered wandering in a country road by a motorist. At the hospital, the boy is unresponsive to the questions of the police. When his mother, Patricia, arrives, she tells them that her son, Victor, is deaf and communicates via sign language.
