Spain 26 min. min Catalan premiere


A 28-year-old boy (Alex) comes to a village bar looking for someone. There’s a song playing and a group is dancing it. One of them, Edu(19), our protagonist, is dancing it like a madman. They both have a conversation that we can’t listen to because the music is too loud but we can see that Alex is very affected. Edu doesn’t react and keeps dancing to forget about it. Marta (18), his girlfriend, is watching the scene from the bar.
