Rafa’s never had to leave his hometown of Seville to get what matters most to him in life: dry sherry, hair gel and women. And then one day everything changes. The first woman to resist his charms ever appears: Amaia, from the Basque Country. Determined to win over her, Rafa crosses Spain from south to north from his hometown of Seville to Basque Country. Once there, he will do whatever it takes to win her heart, no matter how unreasonable it may be. He’ll change his accent, his style, and he’ll lie to no end, pretending to be Basque
