U.S. Premiere. Q&A with director Elena Trapé on Dec. 4

When longtime friends Olivia, Eloi, Guille and Anna travel to Berlin to surprise their college classmate Comas for his 35th birthday, he is less than pleased to see them. During their weekend together, the group tries to revive the closeness of their student years, but contradictions and tensions emerge as they slowly come to realize that Comas' life in Berlin is not what he'd made it out to be — and that perhaps they don't know one another as well as they'd thought. Part twisted buddy comedy, part mystery, part existential crisis drama, Elena Trapé's subtly powerful examination of friendship explores the fissures caused by time, distance and coming of age.
