Pablo Ramírez about the nomination of the film for the Goya Awards 2023
The film is a biographical documentary that narrates her fight against cancer. The 18 times windsurfing world champion, Daida Ruano Moreno, is the protagonist of this short biographical documentary and it narrates one of the lesser known stages of her sporting career, which was marked by her fight against cancer. In 2012, the 18-time windsurfing World Champion underwent surgery for ovarian cancer and this milestone marks the storyline of the short film. All the profits generated will go to raise awareness and donations to the Spanish Association Against Cancer.
