This project was born from a script written during quarantine. It was me, the director (hi!), who wrote it, while remembering a very emotional summer I shared with a friend. It was a time during which we thought about leaving everything behind. We thought about taking a new path that wouldn’t be going to University, the same way as the main characters of this story do. Having such an important decision ahead of us we felt a lot of different emotions, among which were also uncertainty and disillusion.
I started this project entirely alone. With a script in one hand and an Instagram account I used to get in touch with people in the other. So I rolled up my sleeves and got to work. And it turned out pretty well! Now we are a family of almost 15 wonderful people who are selflessly helping me to bring my vision into reality. We count on the presence of ESCAC’s graduates, Bande à part students, drama students, designers...
Candela and Diana’s summer is coming to an end. After spending two lazy weeks at the Costa Brava trying to avoid the thoughts of the inevitable return to Barcelona, the time to think what their next step will be has finally come. September is just around the corner and, with it, their first year of University and also going back to their family routines. The girls’ future seems to be dictated: Candela will reluctantly study Medicine under the attentive gaze of her parents, and Diana will become an artist trying to survive the difficult situation she has at home meanwhile.
It will be during this tough process of thought about the imminent return to the tedious normality that the girls will deal with contradictory feelings… What if they don’t go back to Barcelona?
