The night begins for Lily, who works as PR in a bar. An endless night on the streets and in the bars of Madrid, during which she will have time to live a thousand adventures: from transforming a drooling stranger into her best friend to wrecking a musician’s performance, and including the alcohol-soaked intensity of a night lived as if there were no tomorrow. Charismatic and frank, but also mysterious, Lily ends up charming all those around her. But on this journey we’ll see how, behind her apparent flippancy and her foulmouthed character, Lily is concealing impenetrable enigmas and sadness. The vibrant, vigorous camerawork by Pol Aregall (who co-directed Amanecidos with Boix) makes us feel like another onlooker in this young story.
