Conxita- in her twenties- the latest representative of a whole generation- lost her heart somewhere between Madrid and Barcelona. A 'real spitfire' according to her mother- she faces everyday events with great courage. A former student of Fine Arts- she draws her every adventure- from her apartment that she shares with a girl who's her mirror image- her household- her computer- her dreams to elsewhere- her escapes to the beach- her telephone conversations with friends- to her more or less happy dates. In this autobiographical tale in seventeen short tableaux- Conxita Herrero shakes up preconceived ideas about the transition to adulthood. In a minimalist and rigorous style- she plays with antagonisms and mixes inertia and movement- silent panels and intimate- mysterious dialogues- bare lines and pure colors. Freeing herself from the 'concern for truth' specific to the autobiography- the author sheds any sentimentality and provides her sets and her characters with sketchy features a strange and fascinating dimension oscillating between reality and dream.
