Description:
  Carmeta, Mari and Pilar are three old ladies from Sucs, a little village in Plana de Lleida, who spend every afternoon sitting on a bench to catch up. The arrival of a strange couple of young girls turns into the main topic of discussion among the three friends, who find it hard to agree on the origin, age and the lifestyle of the two strangers.

From their strategic location, they greet every passer-by while they talk about the new arrivals until gossip awakes deep feelings from their past.

Director Statement:

Despite social progress in sexual identity, homosexuality is still a taboo subject in the most isolated rural parts of Spain. Traditional values point out and punish any disconformity sign, especially in the case of women. However, this social pressure comes not just from customs and practices in these communities, but from fear of individual freedom as well.

“Mai,” tells the story of a woman who behaves both as a victim and as a persecutor, who criticizes everything she always longed for and who becomes, in the end, her own worst enemy.
