, which received two Silver Biznagas at this very festival and assisted Lacuesta's on his previous film, as well as having directed several episodes of the series Deudas.

), the film tells the story of how in Granada, at the end of the nineties and in the midst of artistic and cultural effervescence, an indie band is in its most precarious period: the bass player breaks up with the band in search of his place outside music and the guitarist is in a dangerous spiral of self-destruction. Meanwhile, the singer is facing a complicated writing and recording process for his third album. No one knows that this LP - which opens with the song Segundo premio - will forever change the music scene of an entire country.

Isaki Lacuesta has stated that "its main characters are played by real musicians from Granada from a generation after Los Planetas and some of them were related to the original band. The music scenes were performed live on set. The film doesn’t aim to be an accurate historical chronicle, but an almost fantastic overview. We didn't want to make a film about Los Planetas but about their legend, as it might be told a hundred years from now."
