The plot, written by Querejeta herself together with Antonio Mercero, tells the story of Elia. Her 40th birthday is the perfect excuse for her to gather together a few friends and family members in a luxury cottage. There is something she needs to tell them: she is the sole winner of that week’s EuroMillions jackpot. From the moment the guests are made aware of the fact that Elia is the lucky recipient of the €140 million that just fell into her lap, the atmosphere begins to turn tense, and what initially appears to be shared joy gradually begins to turn into a greedy form of trickery with a view to ending up with Elia’s money.

As with her previous work, 15 años y un día, Felices 140 sees production being handled by Gerardo Herrero’s outfits – in this case, Hernández y Fernández PC and Tornasol Films – as well as Foresta Films and La Ignorancia de la Sangre AIE. The project also has backing from the ICAA, Canarias Cultura en Red and the Canary Islands Government.
