Based on the award-winning comic by festival guest Paco Roca, Wrinkles portrays the poignant and charming friendship between Emilio and Miguel, two elderly gentlemen shut away in a care home. Recent arrival Emilio, who is in the early stages of Alzheimer’s, is helped by new roommate Miguel to avoid doctors discovering his ongoing deterioration. This astonishing story of humanity, friendship and the fragility of old age will make you laugh and cry in equal measure.
