They were adolescent lovers. Lucía (Lucía Jiménez) became one half of a successful pop duo but is now settled into domestic life with a husband and two children. Fernando (Fernando Remallo) gets by selling organic cosmetics but seeks to rekindle Lucía’s career with a modest concert tour of the Spanish countryside. David Trueba’s film reunites the two principals of his first film, The Good Life (1996), two decades later, fast approaching middle age. What became of their dreams and aspirations? Has life changed them in significant ways?
