When Juan's (Alex Brendemul) girlfriend decides to move to London to further her education, Juan wants to make a clean break and ends their relationship.
Feeling lonely and lost he hits upon the idea of going to the same park every day and sitting on exactly the same bench every day, in the hope of meeting someone. To increase the odds, he thinks that pursuing this same theory at a bar table should double his chance of success. As luck would have it this is exactly what happens but then the problems really begin as he embarks on two relationships - with two very different women!
The debut feature of Agusti Vila, this Spanish comedy is very reminiscent of French director Eric Rohmer.
