The Attic of Dreams (El desván de los sueños)

A fresh start.

Tina, at thirty-two, is starting a new life in Madrid. She has just come out of a complicated marriage. Her ex-husband Mario, handsome, brilliant, successful, and from a wealthy family, had a hidden side. Tina gradually ceased to exist during their marriage, becoming a puppet in her husband’s hands.

Now, she doesn’t just have a new apartment and independence, she also has a job at The Attic of Dreams, a charming and cozy neighbourhood bookstore. In the small and lonely dining room of her new home, she often hears the voices of her neighbors, especially Diego’s voice. Diego is a young executive who had been promised a promotion at his dream job abroad, but everything changed when he was left in charge of his eight-year-old nephew, Hugo, who forced him to give up his life plans. Tina frequently overhears their arguments and becomes ever so curious about their story.

One day, Diego meets Tina in the elevator. After Tina offers to give Hugo private lessons, an undeniable chemistry sparks between them. They both feel a powerful attraction, but Tina still carries the open wounds from her ex-husband and is unsure about giving love a second chance.

Tina will also have the unconditional support of her endearing father and her loving sister and confidante, Diana. But will Tina be able to leave behind all the pain from the past and fully embrace a promising future?
