Núria and Joan have been companions since they were 15 years old. The traditional roles within their marriage have given them 30 years of routine stability. The opening of a family business and the discovery of dance effect a radical transformation in Núria. At 56, Núria looks back reflecting on her past… and she decides to reinvent herself. Joan, sensitive and introverted, feels more and more distant from the Nuri of his youth, and misses her. She is not willing to go back to how things were. This documentary project, wrenched from the heart, gives us the inevitable reflection on the harsh human condition.

BEATRIZ OSORNO has a degree in Communication Sciences and she has personally undertaken several documentary projects of social criticism and environmental struggle. Despite her limited experience in cinema, her films (including Tierra Libre / Free Earth and Señorita Sol / Miss Sunshine) have toured South America and Spain. For this reason, she decided to do a Master’s in Documentary Film at ESCAC, to immerse herself in the art of storytelling.
