Pablo arrived in Sydney at the age of three. He and his family lived in Helensburgh (Australia). At the age of ten, Pablo and his family returned to Spain for the first time.

His mother attempted to stay in Spain but her Spanish family did not allow her to separate the family.

Once Pablo grew up, he became a flight attendant in order to be able to take his mum to Spain every year. When his dad passed away, Pablo’s mother returned to Spain for good. She passed away a few years later.

In his film Pablo tells their story and recounts their multiple trips. He further explains his intention to one day go back and settle in Spain with his partner.
