Storyline

Gerona 1989. Sandra (15) and David (16) are friends and companions of adventures since childhood. When they reach adolescence, it seems logical that their friendship leads to a deeper relationship, but an unpredictable event brutally hits each one separately, altering the course that their student lives followed. From that moment, she will become a survivor and he, the guardian of her secret. Together, without ever speaking out loud, they maintain their relationship as accomplices. And they fall in love desperately, with the innocence and cruelty of the children, until life pushes her to cross the threshold of that secret, discovering the only thing that he has never told her, and that will leave them marked forever.

..excellent.. don't know bout that.. but above average for sure
19 February 2017 | by bjariasSee all my reviews

..it's a pretty good little film.. the two leads really make it work.. and at pretty much the age of the character she's portraying this incredible young teenager does an absolutely remarkable job.. indicating just how much talent she possesses, and she is just a wonder to behold on-screen, she'll be around for a very long career if she so chooses.... but seriously, in real life would most any teen age boy be able to keep his hands off her until he was eighteen.. of course not.. but these kinds of scrips lots of times require some substantial leaps of faith.. and this one for sure has more than its' fair share.. but in the end you'll probably give it a six, or maybe even a slightly higher rating (for her especially).. even with an ending that you pretty much knew had to happen... yes, from the very start he was 'the hanged man'... and btw.. her name was first in the opening acting credits.. but appeared near last at the end of the movie... that should not have been.. as it was totally 'her' film
