Synopsis: A young publicist, with a successful professional life but with an empty personal life, finds himself on a trip against time to get to a transcendental business meeting. On the trip, he meets a girl and though they are very different and have opposite ways of life, they click when recalling the most mythical and emotional time of their childhood: the last summer they spent with their gang. We will find out what they were like as kids, how they lived their first love, their first adventures, and how they felt like Heroes when fighting to win that magical cabin on the tree where all their wishes would be fulfilled. This journey to the past, to his old desires and motivations, will make the publicist doubt about his present life and make him decide between his career and the feeling of happiness reborn inside him, thanks to that special and crazy girl who has turned his world upside down.

ABOUT THE MUSIC: “Emotive and elegant dramatic and environmental creation in which the composer applies music that he places at the spatial level of the emotions of the characters to also reach the viewers, who are inevitably involved in what is related in the film. It recreates an evocative environment, moderately melancholic, with music that is intimate at times and absolutely expansive at others. It does so based on a very powerful main theme, the axis of a solid melodic construction where some well-used influences are appreciated (especially notable is the evocation of Ennio Morricone for humorous moments), and that, although he has not managed to maintain his level in all the footage (due to his high starting point) highlights the solvency of the young composer, good at musical creation and better at narrative construction.” MundoBSO

ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE:The music was conducted by David Hernando, recorded with the Bratislava Symphony Orchestra, and mixed by Marc Blanes at BSO Superestudio, Barcelona.
