Facing an endless battle with cancer, Noelia (Isel Rodríguez) is ready to accept her fate. Much to the dismay of her doting boyfriend (Maximiliano Rivas), she stops treatment and flees to her native Vieques, a Puerto Rican island off the coast of the mainland. Vieques itself is in recovery, having been contaminated thanks to its long history as a U.S. Naval testing ground. Much of the island remains closed off due to hazardous waste, which has caused a spike of cancer cases like Noelia's. Joining her mother and childhood friend in the movement to make the island a safer place, Noelia must contend with the legacies of colonialism and come to terms with her own health in this lyrical, poignant debut feature from Glorimar Marrero Sánchez.
