This cheeky, coming-of-age comedy tells the story of 11-year-old Ricardo, who struggles to fit in at his new school in 1981. With a flare for inventiveness and a desperate desire to impress his classmates, Ricardo weaves a web of untruths, which he must carefully maintain to keep up appearances for his new friends. But when reality finally catches up with him, Ricardo is forced to come to terms with his true self.
Bonus Short: Lupe and Bruno directed by Marc Riba and Anna Solanas
- "This is a film that belongs on your 'Must-See' list if you were ever 11 years old and made it to adulthood!"
