Description

Leo (Marisa Paredes) a middle-aged writer of popular romantic novels, despises her own work so much that she pseudonymously writes a scathing review of herself for a newspaper. At home she is equally miserable. Her husband (Imanol Arias), who works overseas, is distant both physically and emotionally. Her mother (Chus Lampreave) and sister (Rossy de Palma) are a maniacal pair constantly bickering with one another. Yet the appearance of a new editor (Juan Echanove) offers an opportunity for Leo to reassess her life.
