What could be worse than being 14 and on vacation with your father, stuck indoors during a seemingly endless rainstorm? Alberto and his two children, Lucia and Federico, set off to a hot springs resort for a short vacation. Alberto, who doesn't see his kids much since the divorce, refuses to allow anything to ruin his plans. But the springs are closed until further notice due to heavy rains, and Lucia's adolescent rebellion clashes against her father's enthusiastic efforts for family quality time. When she meets friends her age, equally bored at the rained-out resort, Lucia's vacation starts looking up. But flings can be fleeting, and it's her father's reliable insistence they spend time together that proves to be the most meaningful part of their unexpectedly enjoyable getaway.

The film's synopsis pretty much explains it. A divorced dad takes his children for a vacation at a resort. The problem is that it rained all the time. Unfortunately, this is another film that I wasn't engaged. The family has its ups and downs during their stay. Even the father occasionally gives up and hits on the lonely women at a local bar. The film concluded open-ended again, with the family still on vacation. At this point, I feel like watching a mindless Hollywood film.

Film Movement's synopsis is perhaps the film one would want to see. My review is that if you want to watch paint dry, this is the film for you.
