The High Pressures
Filmfest 2015

Miguel travels to Pontevedra, his hometown, to search for some locations for a movie. His trip takes him back to the place where he grew up, where he meets some old friends, but it also leads him to the possibility of a new relationship with Alicia, a young nurse.
Miguel will try to finish his work even though he mostly prefers to film the locals he meets, the movements and faces of his friends, the trains coming or the sea.
A journey revolving around the cinema and love.

"This film should be more like a conversation between friends in which they talk at the same time and in the same tone about personal relationships, the frustrations and joys of life, the crisis or of the future."
Ángel Santos
