Almería (Spain), 1966: John Lennon is suffering an existential crisis, has decided he’s ready to launch his acting career and leaves the Beatles. Lennon arrives in Almería to shoot the war movie “How I Won the War” under the direction of Richard Lester. Antonio, an English teacher who teaches in a state school in Albacete, decides to travel to Almeria to meet John Lennon and make him an unusual offer.
En route, Antonio finds Belen and Juanjo. Escaping the turmoil and reclusive life her family and society have forced upon her, Belen leaves a convent in the middle of the night. Antonio and Belen then encounter Juanjo, a 16-year-old teenager who has fled his house in the middle of an argument with his father because he won’t cut his hair – he looks like a Beatle.
For the three of them, Lennon becomes an aspirational symbol of freedom. Against the beautiful backdrop of provincial 60s Almería, in the same places and days in which Lennon wrote the song “Strawberry Fields Forever”, the three characters share an adventure that represents a country’s thwarted aspirations for a better future.
Based on a true story.
