Tristán reunites with his longtime friend and former lover, retired singer Lucía, when he books her a small concert tour –her first shows since starting a family six years prior. Seeing straight through his pretense, Lucía agrees to play the concerts to escape her life of domesticity and catch up after 20 years. The pair fill each other in on the two decades they have spent apart and talk about old times, as they travel from gig to gig in this sophisticated road movie with striking similarities to Richard Linklater’s dialogue-driven Before trilogy.
