In between hangovers, as they have nothing better to do in times like these, when finding a job seems almost impossible, a group of recently graduated friends, all with artistic careers (writers, film-makers, musicians…), try to survive themselves in a frenzy of desire, existential angst and rock’n’roll. Lost girls, fragile boys and a summer festival.
About the film:
Many Pieces of Something is a story about being forced into youth, about the inability to live your own life. In Spain, with youth unemployment reaching over 60% in times of crisis, it becomes really difficult to become an adult. Economic and personal independence becomes a horizon that you can never reach no matter how far you walk. This situation turns adolescence into a kind of degenerative illness. A purgatory in which you always seem to be at the same point no matter how much you run.
This film tries to capture through a choral portrait this kind of purgatory, in which the tireless pursuit of happiness seems to be the only antidote to emptiness.
