and You Have to Come and See it), Itziar Manero (the series Días mejores), Helena Ezquerro (the series La reina del pueblo) and the director herself. It is a film with a play within it, but it is also a summer tale. The story of a spell, with princesses, toads, rivers, letters and even an absent-minded prince, according to production.

Its plot, written by the filmmaker, portrays four actresses and a writer spending a week in an old mill in the summer, with the intention of rehearsing a play. Over these days, the women will get to know each other through the materials in the play and will contribute their own experiences around the themes of their characters: love, beauty, orphanhood, faith, friendship, acting and death.

In the words of its director, the film "talks about how women's stories and tales have shaped us and also damaged us. But, above all, it is a film about love: to an alchemical and ancient craft like acting, love between women, love of storytelling and listening. We filmed it out of the belief that sharing ourselves makes us better.”

Arana has had a long career as an actress and creator. With a degree in textual interpretation from the drama school RESAD, she is one of the founders of the performing arts group La tristura, with which she creates, directs and performs in plays such as Actos de juventud, Años 90..., Materia prima, El sur de Europa and Cine. In 2012, she also directed the medium-length film John y Gena (which premiered at the Punto de Vista International Documentary Film Festival), based on images of the artistic and intimate couple John Cassavetes and Gena Rowlands. She has also appeared, among other fictions, in The High Pressures [+lire aussi :

Filming, which took place in an old 17th century mill in Nistal de la Vega (León), was recently completed.
