Four friends travel from Barcelona to Berlin to pay a surprise visit to their old university days friend, Comas, who lives now in the city and is about to turn thirty five. When he doesn't welcome them as expected, a chain of events and comments start to make evident that every one of them has something to hide and thus their friendship is put to the test. A graduate from Barcelona's ESCAC, Elena Trapé brings in her second feature film, and with superb finesse, the vain longing for better and happier past times capturing, with the help of cinematographer Julián Elizalde, the pale and cold light of Berlin's winter as well as the Spaniards's feelings of disorientation.
