Through the Window (2000)

Selma, a widowed and retired nurse, lives with Raimundo, her 24-year-old son, in a middle class neighborhood in Sao Paulo. Mother and son are very close. The routine of the family starts being disrupted, when Raimundo changes his behavior. Selma is jealous and fears that her son might have a girlfriend. The fear of losing his affection blinds her to what is coming.
