In Granada, Spain a British tourist struggles with a broken heart as he befriends a group of young foreigners and crashes into the heart of the international student scene.
He pushes himself out of his comfort-zone and tries to restart his life but behind every corner is a reminder of his ex-girlfriend and his struggle to find closure. A love letter to Granada and the study abroad experience that mixes documentary elements with fiction to create an authentic heartfelt examination on the process of self-discovery.
Granada Nights international cast included up-and-coming, breakthrough and
diverse talent from Spain, France, Portugal, Sweden, USA and UK.
Lead actor is Antonio Aakeel Screen International Star of Tomorrow.
