Axun, a 70 year old woman, is called to the hospital to take care of her daughter’s ex-husband, who has serious injuried in a car accident. To her surprise, the woman who take care of the other patient in the same hospital room turns out to be Maite, her bestfriend when teenagers. They have not seen each other for more than 50 years. The hospital visits will show that the close relationship they had when teenagers is still alive. Their relationship was very fifty years ago but nowadays the same feelings flowrish. They have fun and enjoy each other’s company until Axun find out that Maite is openly lesbian. Was their relastionship when teenagers more that friendship? Where is the thin line that separate friendship from desire? Now that she is 70, does she dare crossing this thin line?


“(…) We were supposed to make the relation between the two women the most natural as possible, avoiding to make it ridiculous. For us For 80 days is the story of two women facing the fear of making a dream come true (…) We wanted the audience to see the adventure of seeing the desire and the fear of being happy fighting a battle where only one between the emotional or your rational side can win. What has already been lived or what is about to be lived. The ego I can find in myself (…) While making the film, we opted for a classic and simple language, both in the plot development and in the style of realization, giving priority to actors, as since the very beginning we had thought about a story of characters.”
