Netflix recently released the movie "We were songs." Starring María Valverde, Álex González, Susana Abaitua and Elisabet Casanovas, it presents the story of a group of friends who lead life and love relationships according to their way of being. In its narrative, the film breaks the fourth wall, at times, so that the character of Valverde (Maca) speaks directly to the viewer. The intention: to bring him closer to the drama of his life until he becomes an accomplice of his story.

With a protagonist in constant emotional conflict, the film walks us through a handful of anecdotes lived by this girl who must shed her immaturity from extreme situations. She is about to turn 30 years old. And although the entire film its protagonist spends it rapt in front of what he wants, dreams and does not have, it ends up looking recurring and boring.

At the end of the story, and after several emotional blows, this capricious girl will discover that the path to happiness lies only in growing up, moving forward, letting go, enjoying and always putting herself above everything and everyone. "Because to love others you have to start loving yourself," he repeats as a maxim.
