ZonaZine presents: Dark blue almost black (Azul oscuro casi negro).

Jorge is a young Spanish man whose plans for the future are put on hold when his father has a stroke. Seven years later, Jorge has finally managed to complete a business degree but finds that no one will hire him because he only has experience as a janitor. However, everything changes when Jorge's brother Antonio gets out of prison and asks him to help impregnate his jailbird girlfriend, Paula in the hope of getting her moved to the easy life of the maternity wing. Jorge reluctantly agrees, even though it might get in the way of his long term on-off relationship with Natalia.
