Premiering in film festivals around the world to widespread critical praise for its winning performances and candid comedy, Aces tells the story of everyday woman Neneta (Lola Dueñas, Volver, The Women on the 6th Floor) who lives without responsibilities or plans in a motor home on the Spanish coast. When her partner ‘Wolf’ (Luis Tosar, Sleep Tight, Cell 211) disappears without explanation, she decides to return to her hometown in Galicia.
As a single mother, she is at the mercy of the harsh judgement of her own mother and the townspeople. Determined to prevail, she lands a job as a construction worker. Neneta confronts the challenge with inspirational courage and a sense of humour as she copes with working hard and being a woman in a man’s world. Eventually, her group becomes known as ‘The Aces’ for being the fastest builders around town, but when ‘Wolf’ reappears, everything that she has built for herself comes under threat once again.
