Fourteen-year-old Jon is increasingly acting out. He gets expelled from school and then poisons a neighbor's dog. His mother, a widow and a struggling actress, feels overwhelmed and sends him to the Alicante coast to live with his grandfather Max, a Bosnian War veteran and a strict disciplinarian. Jon and Max clash – no TV! – but the boy starts to adapt to his new environment and make new friends. Suddenly a shocking act of violence turns Jon's life upside down; it's left to Max to investigate who’s responsible.

Directed with great sensitivity by Gracia Querejeta ("Seven Billiards Tables, Héctor"), the film boasts a stellar cast including the always wonderful Maribel Verdú ("Blancanieves", "Y tu mama también"), and Arón Piper who gives a breakout performance in the lead role.

"15 Years and One Day" is dedicated to the director’s father, the great film producer Elias Querejeta, who died last June.
