Receta No Incluida (Without Prescription)

Olivia is getting ready for her family’s Christmas Eve party. But her OCD, which has been under control, suddenly returns, prompting a desperate search for the pills that have helped her in the past. But as she doesn’t have health insurance, she reaches out to her friend Jessica – who she met years ago in a mental institution – who introduces her to David, the town’s pharmacist’s son, who agrees to sell her the pills. Trapped inside David’s apartment by a rainstorm, two strangers start uncovering truths about each other and begin a healing process that doesn’t necessarily involve pills.
