Mi vida al principio

My Life at the Beginning

It's New Year's Eve in Medarcos, a small town in the mountains of Madrid, inhospitable and frozen. Roma is 9 years old and her favorite place is the lap of her father, Rodolfo. But the atmosphere is strained after his mother has decided not to spend the holidays with his father's family. When Roma dresses up as a boy to sing in the middle of the family celebration, she discovers her father's intolerance. Nothing will be like before.
