Carmen and Lola

Carmen is a gypsy teenager who lives in the outskirts of Madrid. Like any other gypsy, she is destined to live a life that is repeated generation after generation: getting married and raising as many children as possible. But one day she meets Lola, an unusual gypsy who dreams of going to college, draws bird graffiti and is different. Carmen quickly develops a complicity with Lola, and both will try to carry forward their romance, despite the disadvantages and social discrimination to which they have to be submitted by their family.
