“7 Virgins”, directed by Alberto Rodríguez. It is summer in a working-class and marginal neighborhood of a southern city. Tano, a teenager serving a sentence in a reformatory, receives a special 48-hour permit to attend his brother Santacana’s wedding. With his best friend, Richi, he sets out to live those hours with the firm purpose of having fun and doing everything that is forbidden: he gets drunk, takes drugs, steals, loves and feels alive and free again.
But, as the hours go by, Tano also attends the collapse of all its landmarks: the neighborhood, the family, love, friendship, everything has changed. Beyond a 48-hour permit, Tano’s freedom becomes a forced journey towards maturity.
