Synopsis

Violeta is in her early twenties and is doomed to spend the summer in Madrid doing an internship in a publishing house. During those weeks, she will make new friends, make decisions, some good, other bad. And, above all, she will learn that failure is more an art than a tragedy. The movie is a cinephile cover, very low-cost, of Hannah Takes the Stairs (2007) directed by Joe Swanberg.
