"Song Without A Name is a true original, at once rooted in a raw emotional reality but told with the striking beauty of a dream. Writer-director Melina León is definitely one to watch."—Ian Freer, Empire Magazine

"Atmospheric, evocative, and artful... You are completely enthralled and enraptured."—Claudia Puig, FilmWeek

Georgina Condori is a heavily pregnant Andean peasant woman living in a bare wooden shack in a coastal shanty town close to the capital, Lima. Lured into the city by a radio advert promising free "medical assistance", she gives birth to her baby at a downtown clinic. The staff take her newborn daughter away, apparently for routine checks, but never return her.
