A soccer player-turned-con man and an aspiring artist strike up a passionate romance in writer/director Rafa Russo's slow burn romantic drama. Argentinean ex-soccer player Ruben (Gustavo Garzon) has forsaken his athletic career to travel Spain and make a dishonest living. Struggling artist and failed mother Adriana (Ana Fernandez) longs to re-connect with her estranged son Damian (Andres Gertrudix). When the two divorcees meet by chance in a hotel bar, they form a fast bond that soon turns serious when Ruben proposes marriage. Later, as Ruben leaves for a "business trip" and Adrianna embarks on a desperate search for her long-lost son, it becomes increasingly difficult to discern whether Ruben's aim is true or Adrianna is simply the latest in a long line of unsuspecting targets for the unrepentant scammer.
