Synopsis

Isa could have it all… She is an intelligent, beautiful young and confident artist who would like to become an influencer. Being a polyamorous feminist, she strongly defends her way of life. When Guillem asks her to be just exclusive, she denies and they break up. Then Isa has to return to her mother’s house, where she encounters some old trauma that might have shaped her in the past. At her cool but precarious job in a trendy agency, her new coworker Abril, a successful influencer photographer, is generating both fascination and professional doubts in Isa. Ultimately all her contradictions will come to light when her world falls apart.
