Life is turned upside down for three highly skilled university professors who find themselves suddenly unemployed when the economic crisis hits Madrid. Desperate for a new stream of income and disillusioned at the dramatic turn in their once-promising careers, Arturo (Ernesto Sevilla) and Eligio (Carlos Santos) decide to take a chance and support Pedro’s (David Verdaguer, The Days to Come SFF19) secret passion project: developing a multivitamin that removes all the negative effects of a big night out. Teaming up with party girl Jota (Mero González) and down-on-her-luck ex-lawyer Anabel (Miren Ibarguren), the group taps into Madrid’s nightlife to seek out their intended demographic to make their fortune. Things, however, do not go exactly to plan!
Smashing box offices and taking audiences by storm, Carlos Therón’s darkly comic tale I Can Quit Whenever I Want wears its love for the popular American television series Breaking Bad on its sleeve. A hilarious rollercoaster ride into the crazy, unpredictable world of nightclubs, some of Spain’s freshest talent dazzle in this energetic, high-spirited journey to the wild side.
