Spanish with English subtitles

With Verónica Echegui, Antonio de la Torre, Quim Gutiérrez, Roberto Álamo, Miquel Fernández

Efraín, the youngest of five brothers all with biblical names (as in Seven Brides for Seven Brothers), asks his ten- year-old classmate, Carla, to marry him when they both turn 18. Eight years later, who would have thought that Spain would be playing the World Cup finals in South Africa precisely on their wedding day? Efraín will reunite his family on this day of national catharsis and with the entire country paralyzed by the game, each family member will be confronted with the most challenging match of their lives: accepting who they are and where they come from.

Following up from his award-winning DarkBlueAlmostBlack and Cousinhood, director Daniel Sánchez Arévalo brings us a vibrant, funny and tender offering, led by an all-star cast including Miquel Fernández, Antonio de la Torre, and Quim Gutiérrez.
