If I Can’t Fly
(Si no puc volar)
Commercial Fiction / Women's Fiction
A love story about human relationships and how the theater can be a mirror allowing us to know ourselves better, and helping us make some important decisions. Ànnia is about to turn forty. Recently fired from her job as a journalist, she is currently walking her snobbish neighbors’ dogs for a living. She is slowly gaining weight and she still wears animal print underwear as if she were a teenager. Her life is a complete mess. After getting divorced because of her infertility issues, she moves in with her grandfather: the only man with whom she could truly live. During the move, she discovers her ex-husband’s best kept secret in one of the boxes, a lie that lasted the duration of their marriage. But today is Saturday and she’s getting together with her friends to have a cookout and go to the theater to see Companion Animals. The performance has a transformative effect on them all, especially Ànnia and Max, Annia´s best friend, who’s come back from London to confess to her that he needs her by his side, like a companion animal.
