Julia decides to leave Barcelona to study in Berlin. She won’t think about leaving home too much, ready for an adventure.

This film premiered at Málaga Spanish Film Festival 2017, earning awards for Best Film and Best Director in the Zonalibre section, and it has been part of the official selection of San Sebastián Film Festival, SEMINCI at Valladolid and CinemaJove in Spain, among many others.
