An intelligent, bracing study of Spanish twentysomethings doomed to unemployment and disillusion, told through the story of a couple with a newborn child"
- Peter Bradshaw at The Guardian

"A stark and rather diffuse Spanish drama starring two attractive leads whose lives are far from appealing."
- Hollywood reporter

"Major life decisions — like 'let's make a baby' and 'let's make a porno' — have low-key consequences in this portrait of a typical Spanish couple."
- Peter Debruge at Variety

Natalia and Carlos, both aged 20, are in love and struggling to survive in today's Spain. Their limited resources prevent them from getting ahead as they'd like to. They have no great ambitions because they have no great hopes. To earn some money, they decide to shoot an amateur porno film. The birth of their daughter Julia is the main catalyst for the changes they make.
