On St John’s Eve in 1980, the inhabitants of Calabella on the Costa Brava await the legendary Ava Gardner, who is coming to open the village’s summer cinema. Everyone is desperately waiting for the actress, except for Justo, the black sheep of the peculiar Brightman family. On the most magical day of the year, the boy has decided that, instead of making a wish, he’ll do everything he can to change the fate of his loved ones.
Through Màxim Huerta’s wonderful tale, the reader will find out that the most difficult journey is the path to love. It is so often painful and impossible, but, even so, we never stop dreaming about it.
