Synopsis:
Actor Diego Luna stepped behind the camera to direct this warm drama about a young boy whose emotional problems take him in an unexpected direction. Abel is an unstable child whose problems have only gotten worse since his father walked out on the family. No one in the household is sure what to do for Abel or how they should behave around him, and a stay in a mental hospital does little to ground him. However, one day Abel wakes up and decides that he's the man of the house, and begins acting like his absent father rather than the youngest child. To the surprise of everyone, adult responsibilities agree with Abel, and the family seems significantly happier with his new personality. But this proves to be short-lived when Abel's real dad unexpectedly returns, and the two vie for the status of head of the household. Abel received its world premiere at the (2010 Sundance Film Festival).

Abel, a nine-year-old boy, has stopped talking since his father left home. One morning he starts to speak again, and appears to believe that he is the head of the family. As he oversees his siblings' homework and interrogates his sister's new boyfriend, no one dares to challenge this miracle. One day a man shows up at the door, his father. Directed by Diego Luna (Y Tu Mama Tambien, Milk), Abel is a touching mix of comedy and tragedy, which comments on the regular occurrence of absentee fathers in Mexico, where men are often forced to leave their families behind to earn better money in the United States.
