2019 Primavera Prize Winner
Candela is a woman in her forties with a normal life, a penchant for solitude, a gift for observation, and an acid sense of humor. Her days pass without many surprises while she works in the bar she run with her grandmother and her one-eyed mother.
A neighborhood bar where, thanks to the customers, everything under the sun happens. Candela lights up every shadow, even the ones that come back from a past she thought she had forgotten.
With stunning veracity and an at times disturbing sense of humor, Juan del Val has created a portrait of a unique woman.
