2018, City of Valencia (east to Spain). Emilio is a retired academic teacher, widow five years ago of his wife Carmen, who lives the days in a comfortable routine eating in the same bar and solving magic squares in the pastimes until that one day he has difficult to complete the square and confuses the streets to back home. Going to the hospital for a routine medical check, he is diagnosed with the first stage of the Alzheimer's disease, which eventually will delete all his mind and remembers. Just when he leaves the hospital Emilio meets by chance with Julia, his stranded daughter, who works as medical commercial. Noticing about the disease, Julia invites Emilio to a family lunch with his dysfunctional family composed by her husband and his son-in-law Felipe, who tries to be an Internet motivational coach after he was fired of his previous job, and his lame granddaughter Blanca, a 11 years old child as streetwiser as expert in the cell phones and social networks, to consider options ...

Did You Know?


The character of Blanca was originally a older teenager, but when the producers found Mafalda Carbonell, they loved her so much that adapted the character to her age. See more »


Emilio: I'm so attracted to mathematics because of the pure logic in it. Numbers are always rational, predictable. But without warning and amid all those harmonious things, appears the number Pi. One number, mysterious, infinite. It's a number that is alive, constantly forging it own path, never following patterns, established or known and that is how I realized mathematics aren't simply logical, they're also magical. That is what Margarita was to me... magical.

A Film You Can Watch With Your Family
11 January 2020 | by sandie_onlineSee all my reviews

Reviewers need to get their heads out of their a**es. Just because the star of the film is a professor doesn't mean we're looking for academic reviews. This was a film that spanned 3 generations and did it well. Each thought they knew it all but their interactions, just like life, taught them a thing or two ... about life. The relationship between the grandfather and granddaughter held the most charm. The parents lived in their own little world avoiding all that life threw at them. I could relate to the aging grandfather as well as the young girl. The film had a wonderful pace laced with comedy of all sorts. I highly recommend it. Good family comedy-drama.
