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.

A really superb support cast, such as the stunning parents magnificent played by Emilio Gutierrez Caba and Mariana Cordero.
