Fashion student Leo is forced to leave London and return home to live with her eccentric mother after the death of her father. Although on the brink of eviction, mother and daughter can’t renounce the glamourous lifestyle they love and believe they deserve, bonding over their common tragedy, living beyond their means, in the moment. Set in Gijón, El Planeta explores contemporary everyday poverty, class awareness, female desires as well as mother-daughter relationships in post-crisis Spain, carried through by a charming, subtle sense of humour.
