    • Synopsis
    • Even though they refuse to admit it, Lucía and Manuel no longer have dreams in common. They are married, they have a 7-year-old boy, they have their careers, they are adults, they are young... Lucía fantasizes about other male bodies, different from her husband's. Manuel feels she does not fancy him any more and therefore, he is shattered. Maybe for love or perhaps as a remedy for something that is beyond repair, they plan on rebuilding their life together out of town. Their shared passion for architecture seems to bring them together, as they plan on renovating a house with a garden, in a green area. They sell their apartment and move to the house of Lucía’s mother, close to the construction site. Manuel gets a motorbike that will make the daily commute to a job, which doesn't interest him at all less tiring. But living with his wife’s family is suffocating to him. While Lucía turns the construction site into her own personal challenging project, Manuel decides to take a break from cohabitation and moves to his parents’ house. Although reluctant to admit it, Lucía and Manuel begin to live separate lives. They feel like teenagers and discover that they are immature. They try to full their own personal dreams and they forget what brought both of them together. Building a place where to meet is very hard for them, discovering what they have destroyed is hard as well.
