Marisa feels that she is taking a backseat role in her own life. With nothing in the pipeline, no job or future, she puts herself to one side to focus on supporting her best friend, Mina, who’s inconsolable after breaking up with her boyfriend, Salvador. Marisa is lost in a jungle of other people’s drama while postponing hers. She wakens from this lethargy after an unexpected event completely overturns all her ideas and she wanders through the streets of Madrid, until she is forced to face what is worrying her.
