16 year-old Dario got away from home, running from his familiar hell. Luismi, his unconditional friend, Caralimpia, a poor loser in a winners suit and Antonia, an old lady who collects abandoned furniture in her three-wheeler will become his new family.

It wasn't necessary but the disclaimer at the end makes it clear for those who were not sure yet. This is a very personal movie, aimed directly at the family of the filmmaker and his own experience as young adult. And the story does feel like a recapturing and retelling of things that happened in real life.

Like a notebook, reading the episodes and wonder if there was a way to interfere, but not be able to. The quality is there and the acting is good, but it does feel a bit disconnected adding episodes and adventures of a young adult struggling with becoming responsible (not really trying that hard), getting laid, finding money, doing stuff in general ... And all that under minimal supervision, because ... Life!
