Synopsis

Pepe is a boring fifty-year-old taxi driver with heart problems whose life is about to take him for a spin. He suddenly finds out that he has a 20-year-old son conceived in a secret affair he had had with his wife's best friend. Jordi, Pepe’s illegitimate son, comes into his father’s life like a loose canon. He is intelligent, homosexual, love-struck, HIV-positive and passionate about life. He comes to his father, who is like a stranger to him, with a lot of questions about life that not even Pepe has the answer for. However, sacrifice, truth, and love can change all their prejudices.

El Correo

[...] The film is set in the dim twilight of Bilbao, which a rare view of this city. […] But it is a beautiful backdrop to the coming together of a cast of pathetic characters who are described in a simple and lineal way but, at the same time, totally believable. […]…up to the point that we can clearly see the unequivocal cinematographic values that La Buena Voz is using including undisputable current social nuances, a look at bitter realities and even clearly showing what the right thing to do is, in general terms. This is a tried and true filmmaker who is able to capture, with the nervous movements of his camera, the landscape and its inhabitants with an entertaining intimacy. A must-see film [...]
