The theme of escape is recurrent throughout, literature, cinema, music, and philosophy.
It seems to be almost inherent in human beings, the need to search, the need to lose oneself in order to find oneself, to leave behind the past and to face something new. Normally with the naive belief that by leaving, things will be better. But really, we all think the same way and we know that the problem isn’t the place that we are running away from and that leaving isn’t the solution.
This is how Julie leaves, on an impulse, without telling anyone. But she is not the only one who flees. This is a story of constant runaways, non-conforming people looking for a place to be. Everyone has their own reasons to be their naive hope that everything will be fine unites them.
This is the premise with which the film starts. My intention is to provoke and hook the viewer and despite not knowing what will happen, to be able to identify in some way with her.
As all of us, for whatever reasons, have wanted to open the front door and to run.
Alba Gonzalez de Molina, Director of Julie
