Costa Rican director Paz Fábrega (COLD WATER OF THE SEA) tells the story of an unwanted teen pregnancy from a unique perspective in this warm and honest drama. Forty-year-old Luisa (Rebeca Woodbridge) is a successful architect who spends her free time teaching art classes to children in the local school. After a chance encounter with 17-year-old student Yuliana (Raquel Villalobos), she learns that the teen is pregnant and unsure of where to turn. Luisa decides to help the young woman, giving Yuliana the safe space she needs to decide what to do — and ultimately helping her to conceal her condition from her unsuspecting parent. Initially filling the role of Good Samaritan, Luisa gradually finds herself slipping into a difficult and ambiguous position somewhere between friend, teacher and mother figure.
