Ana (Ingrid García Jonsson) is a young, well-educated, cosmopolitan woman from a traditional middle-class family. She is about to finish her PhD in Law and get married, neither of which dissipate the overwhelming sense of disillusionment she feels that is causing her to question if this is, in fact, her own life. Ana’s misgivings about her own identity intensify when one day, a doppelganger appears to replace her. Initially afraid, Ana soon recognises that this is her chance to be totally free. Deciding to explore her new anonymity and test her own limits, she searches for her true meaning of life in the boarding houses and cabaret nights of Madrid. However, Ana soon discovers that absconding her identity is not as easy as she had imagined.

García Jonsson, the star of the heartbreaking Beautiful Youth (SFF15), delivers another truly mesmerising lead performance in Ana by Day. This is further elevated by the luxurious cinematography resulting in a warmly inviting yet dangerous drama that will undoubtedly leave audiences also questioning who they really are.
