Granada, late 90s. In full artistic and cultural effervescence, an indie music band is going through its most delicate moment: the bassist breaks up with the band looking for her place outside music and the guitarist is immersed in a dangerous spiral of self-destruction. Meanwhile, the singer is facing a complicated process of writing and recording his third album. Little does anyone know that this album will forever change the music scene across the country.
This is (not) a film about Los Planetas.
The script is signed by Isaki Lacuesta and Fernando Navarro, and the cast is headed by Daniel Ibáñez, Cristalino, Stéphanie Magnin, Mafo, Chesco Ruiz and Edu Rejón.
