Two Spanish women from different generations meet in a hospital room in Belgium. María has lived there for decades after emigrating in her youth, and Verónica is a youngnewcomer in search of opportunities that she never found in Spain. Between them a peculiar friendship is forged that will lead María to undertake a trip back to the south of Spain with an unusual mission. What begins as a journey in search of Verónica’s roots, will become an opportunity to question certain principles on which she based her life.
