Jacobo Morales burst onto the entertainment industry at the age of fourteen and soon after, developed his writing skills in television and with La criada malcriada (1965). The first film he directed, ...And God Created Them (1979), is recognized as the marking point where Puerto Rico's film industry evolved. His third film, Lo que le pasó a Santiago (1989), reached an Academy Award nomination for Best Foreign Language Film in 1990. Morales is considered by many to be the most influential filmmaker in Puerto Rico.

A heartbeat. A memory. A lost love.
