Manuela and Olmo meet up one day for a drink. It’s been years. She hands him a letter, a letter that he had written her when they were high school sweethearts, a letter that will shake the foundations of everything they feel—or believe they feel—now that they’ve passed the thirty-year mark. Over one night on the town in Madrid, to the beat of music and cocktails, Manuela and Olmo will reunite in a future that they had promised one another fifteen years ago when they were teenagers experiencing their first love.
