When he was a teenager, Billy used to be in a boy band. He wasn’t the most popular of the group and, unlike some of his bandmates, he used to do playback rather than sing. But he was part of the band and they had a couple of well-known hits. Now, he is married and has a baby. He waits at home all day waiting for his wife to come back from work. He doesn’t know what to do with his depressing life without a future. The day his new neighbor recognizes him, the shaky foundations of his life start to sway.
Claudia Sainte-Luce (Los insólitos peces gato) breathes a feminine sensibility into this endearing story about love and music, with a subtle sense of humor, made on a low budget and with a small ensemble cast that works perfectly, led by Roberto Quijano, a well-known face in romcoms, here playing a more introspective and significant role.
