Lis is a teenager whose dream is to become a circus artist and leave her hometown, even if she knows she’ll have to fight her side against her parents. It’s summer and she spends her days playing with her friends and flirting with her boyfriend, a few years older than herself. The lack of privacy and the neighbours’ gossip force Lis to keep their relationship a secret so that her parents won’t find out. A relationship which will change her live forever.

​​​​​​​Lucía Alemany was born in 1985 in Traiguera, a small Valencian town. In 2009 she began her studies at ESCAC (School of Cinema and Audio-visuals of Catalonia), specializing in directing and focusing  her attention on how to direct actors in their most realistic register, relying on improvisation as the main engine of all her practices. Which in 2015 resulted in the short film 14 anys i un dia (Premiere at Seminci 2015). A year later, in 2016, Lucía began to write, together with Laia Soler Aragonés, the script for La Inocencia, which was filmed in 2018 in her hometown and premiered in 2020.
