Mañana Sol

2023 – 90 Min.

After a painful separation, two pensioners find themselves on the islands of Gran Canaria and Tenerife, struggling with their retirement full of boredom, lost love and the last dreams of life.

Almost 35 years ago, Jadranka and Sasa Pavlovic crossed paths and fell in love on the Canary Islands. After years of shift work and self-employment, their life has washed them back to the Spanish cliffs. Here they parted ways and are now living as friends on two islands that are five and a half hours apart. To combat her boredom, Jadranka decides to open a bar, while Sasa finds himself struggling with heartbreak and his physical decay.

A film about the search for meaning in retirement and a look into a complex life of a past generation.
