Ramiro, a young man from Madrid, is trying to forget his six year relationship with Andrea. According to his calculations, it takes about half that time to get over that painful reality. He works with his uncle in a bookstore, much like The Strand in New York, where all sorts of books can be found. The friends that knew him when he was with Andrea try to be kind, but he feels lost.
Going over some old things he took to his mother's apartment after the breakup, Ramiro finds some poetry he wrote years ago. Showing it to friends he gets positive vibes. How about having them printed? His uncle is all for it. The modest issue for such a book is only 500 units, but to add to Ramiro's injured heart, his name is incorrectly spelled in the title!
A Spanish comedy directed by Jonas Trueba, who is a son of Fernando Trueba, the director of "Belle Epoque" and "Calle 54" to name just two. Young Trueba was nominated for Best New Director for this effort, which while not being a total failure, it does not hold the viewer's attention. The film feels empty. On the other hand, young Trueba gets decent acting from his young cast.
