Synopsis

Poti, Nais, Ione and Das are young Spanish adults that live on their own terms. But as they approach their thirties, a profound unease overruns them: they are still far of being the independent, self-confident and passionate adults they always dreamt to be. While society pushes them to abandon ‘egotistical’ aspirations, each has to examine identity through dialogue. Thus begins an intimate exchange between them and Marina, their friend and director of this film. With the proximity of her camera, she accompanies them in the most lucid and fragile moments of daily life: dancing, waking up together; drifting around beloved landscapes; breaking into tears and laughter while reflecting in complicity about how to maintain integrity. Young & Beautiful is the polyhedric portrait of a generation accused of not wanting to grow-up; a generation which has been cornered to accept a hopeless world and a country in crisis, in which it has been announced that the one way to survive is to abandon dreams.
