To celebrate her 30th birthday, Alba and her friends rent a woodland cottage for the weekend, eager to clink glasses, let loose, and live it up to the maximum. However, the festivities turn sour when Pablo, Alba's boyfriend, unexpectedly breaks up with her, claiming that he needs time. In a neat sci-fi trick, Alba is suddenly frozen in her own time-loop, transported back to the car journey and condemned to relive the separation over and over – but with one hour less each time. Can she avoid the inevitable and persuade Pablo of her love, before it's too late? It's a countdown – and time is running out.

 

Written and directed by Jon Mikel Caballero, The Incredible Shrinking Wknd is a dark, poignant reimagination of Groundhog Day – but for break-ups.

A woman returns to her flat, flicks on the radio, and puts away her shopping. All of a sudden, however, the reception fizzles out, the windows are bolted shut, and the doors won't budge. Imprisoned in her home and her mind, there's no way out. A sharp psychological thriller from Basque director Aitzpea Goenaga, who plays the central role.

¡YA ESTA!
