Aces

Neneta lives without responsibilities or plans in a motor home on the coast of Spain. When her partner, 'Wolf', disappears without explanation she decides to go back to her hometown in Galicia - a difficult decision involving returning to her mother and finding a job, which she finally gets as a construction worker. With courage and sense of humor she overcomes the hard labour and male-dominated environment. But 'Wolf' comes back and she must confront the decision to run with him again or stay and build a life for her and her child.

Winner of Best Film, Best Script and Best Director awards at Premios Mestre Mateo del Audiovisual Gallego.

**The ESFF is very excited to welcome the director of 'Aces', Alfonso Zarauza, who will present the film and answer some questions of the audience.
