Synopsis


A thriller with surreal black comedic touches, this unique road movie and journey across Madrid starring Malena Alterio (IN THERAPY SPA23) in a Goya-winning, career-defining performance as a woman looking for freedom. Lucia (Alterio) lives an uneventful life as an IT specialist in Madrid. When the company she works for goes bankrupt due to embezzlement, she decides to make a radical change in her life. She meets a series of colourful people, including theatre producer Roberta, and flirty journalist Ricardo. Yet, Lucía secretly hopes that one day she will meet actor Braulio, to whom she owes her obsession with the Turandot aria “Nessun Dorma”, and he will become her prince charming. But fantasy doesn’t always live up to reality. Adapted from Juan José Millás’ bestselling novel, this dramatic thriller from Antonio Méndez Esparza delivers a refreshing take on the cultural elite, obsession and truth.
