Paloma, a single mother, is on holiday in a beach hotel with her 15-year old son Hector. The two are best friends, spend almost all their time together and share the most intimate thoughts as they rub sun cream on each other. But when Hector meets a girl his age at the resort, dark clouds gather over the mother-son idyll. The sexual tension between the teenagers is tangible -- and Paloma suddenly finds herself in a bizarre competition for her son's attention. Club Sandwich is both a sensitively told and a screamingly funny coming-of-age story with a finale furioso.
