The Spanish drama, awarded at the Berlin Film Festival and a winner of the Goya Award, is based on a novel inspired by the true events of Ramón González. French top actors Nahuel Pérez Biscayart (known for "Persian Lessons" and "120 BPM") and Noémie Merlant (remembered from "Portrait of a Lady on Fire") portray Ramón and Céline, who spend an evening at a rock concert in Paris. Suddenly, heavily armed terrorists attack the venue and unleash merciless gunfire. The couple survives the ordeal physically, but the trauma of the event haunts them. Particularly, Ramón can't seem to shake off the memories and becomes mentally incapacitated. The young couple's relationship faces an unprecedented test: is it even possible to return to the old and safe life they once had?
