A touching drama that played dozens of festivals world wide and the big winner at the 2011 Toulouse Cinespaña where it won Best Film, Best Actress and Best Screenplay. 70-year-old Axun is a housewife at a conservative Basque village when she receives a surprising phone call from the hospital: her daughter’s exboyfriend is badly hurt at a traffic accident and is in a hospital in a coma. Despite not being in touch with him and maybe because she is bored with her husband and life in the village she decides to go to the big city hospital where she meets Maite, a childhood friend she hadn’t seen in over 50 years. This encounter will spark old suppressed feelings and for the next 80 days they will experience a rollercoaster of emotions.
