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.

The review proved informative. I have still to see this movie before I could comment on the same. I saw Alvaro Cervantes movie "Three meters above heaven" and was happy with him featuring with Mario Casas. The review appears good and the film should have been a big hit at that time of the period when it was released. One thing I have to complement is that Spain really has a few very good story writers, film producers and directors who come up with great stories and films. I wish to see this movie too. However, I have been made to understand that we could free download the movie via IMDb. If yes, please provide me the link. I would appreciate the movie with proper English subtitles This will help me to understand the movie best. Thanks
