Stormy Lola

Loli Tormenta

Acclaimed cult director Agusti Villaronga (Black Bread) is back with his most emotional film to date. STORMY LOLA is a dramedy with a unique humorous and tender tone in which a vivacious sporty grandmother slowly falling into Alzheimer’s is helped by her teenage grandsons to avoid ending up in a nursing home. Susi Sanchez (Pain and Glory, Lullaby) delivers one of her best performances as Lola, a truly unexpected force of nature. Produced by Irusoin (Handia, Loreak) and Vilaüt Films (Alcarras), this fresh life-affirming family story is destined to capture audiences’ hearts worldwide.

Robert and Edgar’s modern yet chaotic grandmother, Lola, has taken care of them ever since their mother died a few years back. But their quiet life in a modest home just outside Barcelona is about to drastically change when Lola is diagnosed with an advanced stage of dementia. Unwilling to be thrown into foster care and separated from her, the boys decide to take on Lola’s care, applying boundless imagination and fantasy to concealing her disease to the world and overcoming all sorts of obstacles.
