For how long is the ex-partner of a friend untouchable? Without offering a definitive answer, Argentinian director Victoria Galardi (Lovely Loneliness) bravely addresses the question in this profound, restrained and stylish observation on modern relationships starring Elena Anaya, best known to audiences for her role in Pedro Almodovar’s The Skin I Live In.
Lucía (Victoria Bertuccelli, To Fool A Thief, SFF14) has been separated from Ricki, the father of her daughter Abi, for 4 years. She invites her best friend Ana (Elena Anaya, Room in Rome, SFF10) to stay and care for the house and enjoy the summer by the pool while she takes a short trip to Uruguay with her new partner. Early the morning after Lucía leaves, Ricki, who has not seen Ana for almost 2 years, comes to collect his daughter. In a casual and unexpected encounter, Ana and Ricki discover an attraction - or perhaps confirm one that may have always been there - and a romance is ignited.
Upon Lucía’s return Ana avoids the inevitable admission as she battles guilt, lies and the fear of losing her friend.
