ESP | 2018 | dir. Gracia Quejereta, with Maribel Verdú, Juana Acosta, and Paula Echevarría

Leyre (Maribel Verdú) is a well-heeled divorcee enjoying a comfortable life at her villa in Bilbao. However, her world is turned upside down when her son Asier kills her ex-husband stone-dead. In an instant, Leyre will transform from aspiring cupcake entrepreneur to protective mother, going to absurd lengths to save her son and hide the crime from the police. As the mayhem piles up and up in this fresh, hectic, and hysterical comedy, Leyre is forced to navigate the amorous attentions of son’s friend Julen, the tax-fraud schemes of her ex-husband’s widow, and the volley of frank and hilarious comments from her ageing, no-nonsense mother.
