Synopsis / Plot
A comedy about a rich kid from Andalusia who passes himself off as Basque in order to win the heart of the only woman who ever resisted his charms. Rafa (Dani Rovira) has to travel to the north of Spain to follow Amaia (Clara Lago), a basque girl he has met in Seville, despite of the advisements of his friends, who think he will fail in his attempt to seduce Amaia. The movie has been compared with the 2008 French comedy "Bienvenue chez les Ch'tis", about a southern Frenchman who travels up north and has to deal with confusing language-based situations.
