Pilar Palomero’s award-winning directorial debut is a coming-of-age story set in a provincial Spanish city in the early 1990s. Celia (Andrea Fandos) is an introverted Catholic schoolgirl who lives with her widowed mother (Natalia de Molina). When a new classmate from Barcelona, Brisa (Zoe Arnao), brings with her the winds of change from the big city, Celia hurls herself into adolescence and discovers that the world is much bigger than her conservative upbringing has prepared her for. “The new unexpected gem of Spanish cinema … one of the most outstanding and exciting Spanish films in the last few years…” - Marta Medina, El Confidencial. Named Best Film at the Málaga Spanish Film Festival.
