Arriving at her family's seaside mansion on the Spanish coast, sheltered 15-year-old Nora (Maria Morera Colomer, LIFE WITHOUT SARA AMAT) thinks she's in for another routine vacation. But the arrival of Libertad (newcomer Nicolle García), the estranged daughter of her grandmother's Colombian caretaker, ushers in a summer of sneaking out, self-discovery and sexual awakening. Exploring issues of class and female friendship, this vibrant, sensitively told coming-of-age story is the critically acclaimed directorial debut of award-winning Spanish screenwriter Clara Roquet (10.000 KM; COSTA BRAVA, LEBANON; PETRA). Official Selection, 2021 Cannes Film Festival. DIR/SCR Clara Roquet; PROD Tono Folguera, Sergi Moreno, Stefan Schmitz, María Zamora. Spain/Belgium, 2021, color, 104 min.
