La boda de Rosa
Rosa has had enough! She’s worked herself to the bone as a seamstress, looked after her father, and taken care of her brother’s children and a friend’s cat. On top of all of this, her father announces he’s moving in with her. Without warning, Rosa leaves Valencia to fulfil her dream of starting up her own business in her mother’s empty dressmaking shop in a small town on the Spanish coast. And – she wants to marry!
