The brave and daring debut of Arantxa Echevarría, which earned her a Goya to the Best New Director, approaches an almost taboo subject among the gypsy community: a lesbian relationship between two girls who are unwilling to accept the role that their families and destiny have set out for them. Refreshing, free and brimming with spontaneity, this is a moving film that makes it impossible not to feel admiration and affection for the two protagonists, splendidly portrayed by debutantes Carolina Yuste and Zaira Romero.
Carmen lives in a gypsy community in the suburbs of Madrid. 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. But one day she meets Lola, an uncommon gypsy girl who dreams about going to university, draws bird graffiti and likes girls. Carmen quickly develops a complicity with Lola and discovers a world that, inevitably, leads them to be rejected by their families.
