A British tourist struggles to mend his broken heart. After a sudden breakup with his girlfriend he finds himself lost and isolated in the foreign city of Granada, Spain.

It’s only when he befriends a group of young international students that he starts to push himself out of his comfort-zone. From Easter Processions, Moorish influences and Flamenco Gypsies he immerses himself in the many cultures that inhabit the city.

With his new foreign friends, he enrols on a Spanish class, moves into their apartment and tries to restart his life. But behind every corner is a reminder of his ex-girlfriend and his struggle to find closure.

A love letter to Granada and the study abroad experience that mixes documentary with fiction to create a real and authentic heartfelt examination on the process of self-discovery. Framed in a unique aspect ratio has never been done before in the history of cinema.
