SYNOPSIS:
MAKTUB

Manolo (Diego Peretti) is in the midst of a mid-life crisis. His marriage with Beatriz (Aitana Sánchez-Gijón) is on the verge of collapse, the routine of his job is unbearable, and his relationship with his two children and with life itself is ill-fated.
However, by chance he runs into Antonio (Andoni Hernández), a 15-year-old boy from the Canary Islands who is ill with cancer but who has a contagious vitality. From that moment on, Manolo's friendship with him, his mother (Goya Toledo), an amusing fast food deliveryman (Jorge García) and an eccentric nurse (Rosa María Sardá), among others, will be the beginning of a symphony of coincidences that will change his life.

Maktub is the first movie to be written and directed by Paco Arango. He put together both a first rate technical team and top line up of actors to give it every chance to be a resounding success. As Paco Arango explains, "the 'aim of MAKTUB is to make you feel good, to help bring back our zest for life (...) It is a story suitable for all audiences, and my hope is that it will transmit happiness to all who see it."
Maktub has had an excellent response from both critics, media and the general public, and has received three Goya nominations
