2019, City of Madrid (Madrid, center to Spain and capital's country). According to himself, Javier is the perfect father of the 21st Century: working as CEO and computer technician for an important mobile phone company, he is all the days lost in his laptop programming new apps for an incoming project, neglecting his wife Marisa and his five children (teenager Sara, preteen Carlota, child Rocío and Dani, and little child Paula) despite he believes that all is right, that he knows perfectly to his children and that Marisa simply exaggerates any thing needlessly.

Normally comedies are unintelligent, or use dirty jokes, slapstick... This comedy was funny, just tender enough to be cute without causing diabetes, and fun all the way through.

Really recommended for a Christmas watch.
