    • Synopsis
    • An adaption of the book “SLAM” by Nick Hornby, which tells the story of Sam, a 16 year old boy who doesn’t know exactly what he is doing with his life and spends his afternoons skating and dreaming of being the first in his family to go to university. He gets distracted when he discovers that Alícia, his recent girlfriend from a high class family, is pregnant. Sam repeats the “slam” of his mum, who got pregnant with him at the age of 16 and who had hoped that he would take a different path. In just a few days he goes on a roller coaster of emotions, even running away and spending a day pretending to be somebody else. The theme of teenage pregnancy is dealt with from an original point of view, from the boy, in a direct, but sensitive, delicate and very humorous manner.
