Based on Paco Roca’s comic of the same title Wrinkles portrays the friendship between Emilio and Miguel, two aged gentlemen shut away in a care home. Re-cent arrival Emilio, in the early stages of Alzheimer, is helped by Miguel and col-leagues to avoid ending up on the feared top floor of the care home, also known as the lost causes or “assisted” floor. Their wild plan infuses their otherwise tedi-ous day-to-day with humor and tenderness, because although for some their lives are coming to an end, for them it is just a new beginning.
Animator and director Ignacio Ferreras counts as career highlights his work on Sylvain Chomet's The Illusionist (2010) and storyboarding Asterix and The Vi-kings (2004).

In 2002 he made the short film How to Cope with Death, awarded with the “Jean-Luc Xiberras” prize for Best First Short Film at Annecy 2003, as well as 22 other international awards.
