Basque & Spanish with English subtitles

From Basque directors Jon Garaño and José Mari Goenaga comes a story of illicit desire handled with warmth, delicacy and humor. This sensitive and unusual love story posesses one simple question: if you had to choose, would you follow your mind or your heart? Forbidden by society to develop their budding passion, childhood girlfriends Axun (Itziar Aizpuru) and Maite (Mariasun Pagoaga) were forced to embark on very different paths in life. When Axun returns to their hometown of San Sebastian 50 years later, the women are reunited and given another chance to explore this unfulfilled love they shared years ago. But as Axun and Maite rekindle their passion, they must confront not only society, but the lives they have created and the women they have become. With stirring performances by Aizpuru and Pagoaga, whose onscreen chemistry brings this love story to life, 80 Days forces us to re-evaluate both the passions that lay buried within, as well as those that we have cultivated without.
