Fuimos canciones (We Were Songs) is adapted from Elísabet Benavent‘s best-selling two-part “Canciones y recuerdos” novel series.

The main cast includes María Valverde (Three Steps Above Heaven, The Weakness of the Bolshevik), Alex González (El Príncipe, Unauthorized Living), Elísabet Casanovas (Merlí, Welcome to the Family), Susana Abaitúa (Patria, I Know Who You Are), Eva Ugarte (In Family I Trust, Velvet), and Miri Pérez-Cabrero. Supporting cast members include Roger Berruezo (Acacias 38), Ignacio Montes (Velvet Colección), Artur Busquets (I Know Who You Are), Claudia Galán (High Seas), and Carlo Constanzia (Toy Boy).

The romantic comedy follows 30-year-old Maca (María Valverde), who, although clumsy by nature, makes the most of life and strives to be happy. Her talent is wasted working as an assistant for an oppressive and terrifying fashion influencer, and her time is spent with guys with whom she never manages to establish an emotional bond.

Together with her two unique and lovable friends, Jimena (Elísabet Casanovas) and Adriana (Susana Abaitúa), who are always prepared to do everything possible to make their problems seem not so bad, Maca manages to make Madrid a city where everything is possible.

Everything seems to be going well until he, the unmentionable one, comes back into her life. Namely Leo (Alex González) — the love of Maca’s life, the biggest mistake of her life, the man who tore her heart apart and obliterated her self-esteem and her faith in men. Yes, him. He returns to her life to turn everything upside down.

For her part, Maca has tried to forget him. But now she has to accept that he is back, and she must deal with her suppressed emotions and the unforgettable memory of what could have been but never was. Her old wounds have been ripped open, and Maca will have to be brave and confront her conflicts, fears, and insecurities in order to finally take control of her life.

A production of Zeta Studios, Fuimos canciones (We Were Songs) is written by Laura Sarmiento (Matadero) and directed by Juana Macías (Plans for Tomorrow). Filming will take place in Madrid, Spain, and Lisbon, Portugal.

You can set a reminder for the film now.
