The film is set in the city of Zaragoza in 1992, a time when Spain was celebrating the Barcelona Olympics and the Universal Exposition in Seville. The story revolves around young girls who attend a convent school. Their families are different from traditional ones (with married parents).  Celia lives alone with her mother, which makes her somewhat marginalized. Celia, an 11-year-old orphan, faces social pressure due to her status. Her best friends, Cristina and Brisa, help her navigate the challenges posed by societal prejudices against children from single-mother households. As Celia discovers the truth about her orphan status, her friendship with Brisa, a new student from Barcelona, leads to open dialogue about hidden realities. A trip to her ancestral village after her grandfather’s death transforms the mother-daughter relationship, strengthening their bond and empowering them both.
