Eggnog

Eggnog

Javier San Román
Celia is 44 years old and she doesn't want to celebrate it to avoid thinking about what it means to have reached that age without a partner or children. She has invited her friends to dinner at her house, but she has told them that it is not a birthday party, but a Christmas dinner where she will offer them her famous eggnog for dessert, a recipe she learned when she lived in New York. The friends don't keep the deal and show up for the date with a strange birthday gift that will provoke a debate about motherhood and lead to an unexpected ending.
