Storyline

Maria suffers from Alzheimer's disease. Luis, Maria's fifteen-year-old grandson, doesn't say very much either; he shuts himself off in his own silent world to escape his parent's marital crisis, spending time instead picking up stray cats and dogs off the street. His father, Miguel, wants to put a stop to this eccentric behavior, but his protective mother Alice indulges him. Nevertheless, the animals begin to appear at home in increasing numbers, making life complicated for the family in their flat. Written by Karlovy Vary Int'l Film Festival

Trivia

When director Agustí Vila and producer Luis Miñarro were discussing possible choices to pair up with Emma Suárez, they both agreed on Eduard Fernández. Fernández refused the role several times, arguing it was a confusing and not amusing drama. It wasn't until Vila explained to him that it was indeed a comedy that Fernández decided to do it.
