eric, ona and marcel go on a road trip to spread the ashes of a close friend of them, pol, who has unexpectedly died. the getaway, though, becomes a bubble that separates them from reality and and takes them further away instead of bringing them back home.
as they escape, they toughen their friendship and feel stronger than they are. they wander around with no destination, without allowing themselves to feel pain. the three of them have felt and seen death up-close but are not capable of comprehending it.
"one of the most terrible dramas of our existence is living the experince of not having the chance to say goodbye" joan-carles mèlich
eric, ona and marcel met when they were young and forged their friendship along their adolescence. after pol’s death, they enter a state of bewilderment which makes their actions become irrational. as they try to fill up the void, they realise things won’t go back to the way they were.
the lead characters are played by arnau comas, judit cortina and oriol llobet.
