Following her father’s death, Leo abandons her life as a fashion student in London and returns to her hometown of Gijón in Spain, where her mother is on the verge of eviction. The two survive by selling personal items online and running up tabs based on tortuous lies. But spiralling debt doesn’t prevent the pair from dressing up in their best fur coats, heading to the mall to sample makeup and buying adorable shoes—so long as they’re returnable. As Leo and her mother grift their way to a stylish lifestyle beyond their means, their familial bond only strengthens. But doom is on the horizon. This dark comedy explores contemporary poverty, female desire and a complicated filial relationship.
