“Goodbye Grandpa" (Adiós Abuelo) is a heartwarming comedy about a grumpy old man who's given a second chance to reconnect with his estranged daughter after many years. He must meet his eight-year-old grandson, who triggers his need for control and obsesión with higiene. And when he finally musters up the courage to do so, he forms an unexpected bond and friendship that will change his life forever.
When we set out to create "Goodbye Grandpa," we wanted to capture the essence of a fairy tale, something out of a children's book. We knew we had a simple story to work with –the classic trope of opposites attracting, –but we also knew we had to make it interesting and engaging. The challenge was to find a way to take a simple premise and elevate it to something that felt meaningful and powerful.
