Synopsis

Ana is a young, well-educated Spanish woman from a traditional, middle-class family. She is about to finish her PhD in Law and get married but she doesn’t feel fulfilled. One day, a doppelganger takes her place in life, dealing with all her responsibilities. Realizing for the first time that she is totally free, Ana decides to explore her new anonymity and freedom, testing her own limits and searching for the meaning of life, between a boarding-house and cabaret nights in Madrid. However, at one point routine also arrives to her new life and a question haunts her: Is it possible to ever run away from oneself?
