An intimate yet funny portrait of a close mother-daughter bond unexpectedly transformed when one moves away, from Spanish director Celia Rico Clavellino.

Lola Dueñas and Anna Castillo are wonderful as Estrella and Leonor, a retired mother and her introverted 20-something daughter. They live together, sharing everything from meals to TV series, and the mother dotes on her daughter. When Leonor decides to try her luck as an au pair in London, Estrella is left behind, struggling to occupy her time and remain cheerful in a heartbreakingly empty apartment. Unexpectedly, Estrella soon finds her days fruitfully occupied by an unusual new hobby and even an awkward romantic prospect – both of which spawn much hilarity. As it turns out, new-found independence is a blessing more for the mother than the daughter in this beautiful, touching film.
