Storyline

17-year-old Carmen lives in a gypsy community in the suburbs of Madrid and works with her family in a street market. Like every other woman she has ever met, she is destined to live a life that is repeated generation after generation: getting married and raising as many children as possible. She gets engaged to Rafa. But one day she meets 16-year-old Lola, an uncommon gypsy girl who dreams about going to university, draws bird graffiti and likes girls. She also helps her family in the street market. They quickly develop a complicity with each other and discover a world that, inevitably, leads them to be rejected by their families.

Positive and hopeful amidst harsh circumstances
25 July 2019 | by vivaldi-bgdSee all my reviews

I absolutely loved this movie. It addresses a difficult subject, essentially a minority within a minority, being a woman in a deeply male-dominated society, being a lesbian in a culture with strongly predestined roles of wife and mother and being a Gypsy in a white society. In all three aspects that define who they are, they are discriminated. In this harsh milieu, two girls fall in love. I found the movie positive and hopeful. Carmen and Lola were realistic, their love was belivable. The two lead girls were great despite being non-professional actresses.
