Enjoyable dramedy with emotion, sensitive moments, agreeable friendship, father-son relationship and lots of humor.

The picture also deals with interesting and engaging issues such as disemployment, coal crisis, drug abuse , economy downfall, family relationship and many other things. Main cast as Javier Camara , Gonzalo De Castro, Malena Alterio give spendid performances . A really superb support cast, such as the stunning parents magnificent played by Emilio Gutierrez Caba and Mariana Cordero. And the beloved friends as Alcobendas, Cesar Vea, Fanny Gautier, as well as Victor Clavijo as Suso's friend.
