Storyline

Seville, 1977. Reme, 50 and a widow, has a son, Miguel, who is going to become the first member of the family to go to university. Miguel suddenly confesses that he wants to enter a contest for young singers. At a time when homosexuality is a crime, Reme will end up getting involved in the LGTBI movement that in Andalusia, paradoxically, was created within the Church.

The film is a cheekily combative comedy about a dedicated Sevillian mother who, after her son’s coming-out, decides to fight for LGBT+ rights in the 70s… when homosexuality was still a crime in Spain. First-time director Alejandro Marín breaks through with this entertaining heartfelt comedy that tears traditional taboos asunder and defends the right to love.
