We know we can’t live forever. It’s part of what drives us to have kids, build monuments, leave legacies. We hope to remain, somehow, after we’ve passed.

Such concerns weigh heavily on the mind of Marc, a successful artist who heads his own advertising firm, and is deeply in love with the beautiful Naomi (Oona Chaplin). He’s recently learned he has inherited the same painful terminal illness that his father perished from. Shock is followed by sorrow, and then a denial instinct that will usher Marc into uncharted territory—a journey for which he will fall asleep and wake up in 2084.

Writer-director Mateo Gil is one of Spain’s most profoundly revelatory and uncommonly visceral filmmakers., Realive is his most visionary work yet.
