After losing her job as a photographer at a cutting-edge fashion magazine, Marta (Vicky Luengo, Barcelona Summer Night) finds herself forced to abandon the cool, modern world she always dreamed of being part of and return to the old-fashioned, working-class neighborhood where she grew up.

There, she is reunited with her inseparable childhood friends Desi (Carolina Yuste, Carmen & Lola, also in The Cover), Soraya (Angela Cervantes) and Bea (Elisabet Casanovas), and she soon finds herself catapulted back into their authentic, tragicomic friendship.

Being back together again forces them to reconcile the women they have become with the girls they once were, while reevaluating uncertain futures. Despite the passing of time, by relying on each other and the bonds of friendship, the four discover what is important to each of them and learn that sometimes, you can come home.

Featuring four of Spain’s most exciting young film and TV stars, first-time director Carol Rodríguez Colas’ Girlfriends is a fresh, sincere depiction of what it means to come to terms with who you are.
