The Boy and the Fog (Spanish: El Niño y la niebla) is a 1953 Mexican drama film directed by Roberto Gavaldón. It was entered into the 1954 Cannes Film Festival.[1]


Marta (Dolores del Rio) is a woman who lives obsessed, since her brother died of schizophrenia and her mother remains interned at a mental health hospital. Fearful that the disease is congenital, Marta keeps her family background secret from her husband while overprotecting her only son. Because of her obsession, Marta does not realize that the only psychologically affected in her family is her.
