Though they’ve been together only a year, journalist Vir and upstart attorney Lluís (real-life couple Maria Rodriguez Soto and David Verdaguer) have the kind of relationship that thrives on blunt honesty and emotional forthrightness in all matters. After finding out they’re unexpectedly pregnant, the couple approaches the issue with the same sense of openness and candor, opting not to become parents for the time being. But when an emotional game of pros and cons on the eve of the procedure ends with the pair changing course and choosing to accept parenthood, suddenly being young, beautiful, and in love doesn’t seem to be enough. Faced with the stark realities of bringing a child into this modern world, Vir openly grapples with the feeling that she’s “a fraud of a person,” while Lluís takes a soul-crushing job at his uncle’s law firm for the stability it will provide. Amid all this, intense doubts as to the strength of their connection rise to the surface, taking their relationship to the breaking point, in this raw and intimate third feature from writer/director Carlos Marqués-Marcet (SIFF 2014’s 10.000 KM, SIFF 2018’s Anchor and Hope).
