The debut film from veteran Spanish producers Angeles Hernandez and David Matamoros, Isaac stars Pepe Ocio and Ivan Sanchez as Nacho and Denis, two former childhood friends who meet again years after having had an intense relationship as teenagers.
Both men’s lives are now quite different. Nacho and his wife Marta seem to be the perfect bourgeois married couple, but they’re struggling to get pregnant. Denis and his wife Carmen lead a more laid-back lifestyle, living from hand to mouth as they try to save up enough money to open up the restaurant of their dreams.
When Denis offers his partner as a surrogate for Nacho and Marta, the two couples find themselves having to deal with deep secrets the two men buried long ago.
Based on an acclaimed Spanish stage play by Antonio Hernández, Isaac is an emotional and poignant drama about class, happiness, repressed desires and learning to be your true, authentic self.
