Nacho, a young man in his mid-thirties, is losing control of his life. In order to finance his various addictions, he has accumulated large debts with dangerous moneylenders. Fearing he no longer has control over himself, he flees to the city, leaving everything behind. There, he meets a woman who is older than him and falls in love with her. Lucia is very supportive of his development into a better and more adult Nacho. As Nacho’s mother is lying on her deathbed, he is forced to return home and face everything he had left behind.
“I don’t know if it was out of cowardice or the desire to send an optimistic message, but TODOS CONTRA MÍ begins at the moment when Nacho starts to gain control over his problems.
In Spain, more than 400,000 young people are addicted to gambling, not to mention other addictions. Three out of four young people manage to control their addiction, but the fear of relapse haunts them for life.
The film is a year of comings and goings for Nacho, a year of constant change. He is an example that with the help of those around us, friends and family, and even if we sometimes feel that they are against us, we can get out of the darkest pit in which we find ourselves.”
