Pepe has been released from psychiatric hospital on completing his sentence for robbing to work. His need to fit into a senseless world becomes a desperate enterprise. Antonio, a tetraplegic writer, fights for the right to access his own body and for the sexuality of people with functional diversity, awakening the prejudices of those closest to him. The friendship between Antonio and Pepe questions the way we see life and invites us to recognise ourselves as an anomaly. *Catalan première
