About to turn 45, Rosa (Candela Peña) realizes that she has always lived by and for others and decides to press the nuclear button, send everything away and take charge of her life. But first, she wants to embark on a very special commitment: a marriage to herself. She will soon discover that her father, her brothers and her daughter have other plans, and that changing your life is not so easy if it is not in the family script. Getting married, even to herself, is going to be the hardest thing she's ever done.

Elsa (Emma Suárez), Julia (Adriana Ozores), and Amelia (Nathalie Poza) are three women in their fifties, who meet every week to exercise together in a park. On these brisk morning walks, the friends discuss their personal lives and careers, their aspirations, and their deepest secrets. Centering on the witty dialogue and scathing observations of these aging women, the film explores their shared frustrations in a society in which mature women seemingly become invisible. “…the film turns into a cry against discrimination, a demand for attention from the egotistical and absurd system that we’re living in, and a beautiful ode to friendship.” - Alfonso Rivera, Cineuropa.
