Niñato, in Spanish, means something like “the one who never grew up”. David (aka Niñato) is an unemployed father living at his parents in a small apartment in the suburbs of Madrid, but who has not given up his teenage dream of becoming a hip-hop star. David’s life sways between the beats of his rap and the rhythm imposed by his responsibilities. A music consisting of a merry chorus of chaotic alarms on the mornings when he has to take the children to school, endless homework in the afternoon, moments of solitude in his teenage bed at night, and the lack of any permanent future. Niñato is the portrait of a disintegrating working class, but it is also a film about the difficult and exciting task of educating. It takes a heartrending look at the transition into adulthood in a tale full of lyricism in its depiction of the epic of everyday life. (Elena Lopez Riera)

Adrián Orr studied at the Lisbon Cinema School. His short Good Morning Resistance was selected in many festivals: he was already filming the same family as in Ninãto, his first feature film.
