Synopsis:

In Madrid, Generation Z is surviving on precarious work, obsessed with their hobbies with a kind of melancholy that impregnates the end of an era. Such is the life of Ignacio Benavides, and to make matters worse, he has chosen literature as his life raft, and as we know, it’s hard to make a living at it… unless you have contacts, and he hasn’t got a one. A chance encounter brings him into contact with Julio Grasset, a man of the world who doesn’t need to work to live and who opens doors for him that had been closed until then. With the possibility of seeing his dreams fulfilled and of achieving love again through fame, Ignacio starts to frequent Grasset’s circle and the muses who gather around him, falling in to the web of love and searching for a success that in the end will be nothing more than a mirage.

An intelligent comedy that speaks to us of the frustration, promises, and disappointments of a generation.
