Alex and Sergi are in love and planning a family. She gets an opportunity to move to Los Angeles for a photo project and can’t resist. He stays in Barcelona. Their battle to keep their relationship and love is unveiled in a series of Skype calls.
This is basically a two-person movie, and much of the dialogue appears ad-libbed by its two stars, who get co-writing credit.
Relationship movies are hit and miss, and this one hits more than it misses, but with almost nowhere to go, the misses are broad.
