On the cusp of turning thirty-three, charming and soft-spoken Eva makes an unorthodox decision. Unlike the majority of her fellow Madrileños, as the otherwise bustling-with-people city of Madrid shuts down for August, the hottest and loneliest month of the year, Eva decides to spend the entire period in the stifling metropolis in search of an opportunity. As a result, yearning for change and to rediscover herself, Eva meanders through the city's streets that teem with seasonal festivals and religious festivities for the Holy Virgin, filling languid days of summer ennui with visits to museums, old friends, and familiar places. Now, all that Eva needs is a revelation to wipe the slate clean and start afresh. Will Eva find answers in her intimate journey of soul-searching on the hot month of August?Written by

Just watch something else.
I want to warn all those who have not watched this movie yet to please avoid wasting more than 2 hours of your lives with this third-rate film. The plot is absurd (staying in your city in August, okay... Moving to another apartment just for the summer?), the situations are forced, the dialogues are unreal, the performances are poor, the tempo is inadequate (the film is way too slow)... The conversations are silly (they sound like teenagers going through their adolescent crisis more than grown 33 years old people discussing about real problems). Hard to tell where the movie is going (if it is going somewhere).
One could say that the film fails in every possible way. The worst movie I have seen in 2019 and (without a doubt) one of the worst of the decade. If the director were not the son of Fernando Trueba, this film would have never been released.
