María León is Yolanda

Her daughter has been the engine of her life and has now become a ballast. Envious, insecure and distressed. Affectionately vulnerable and dreamy. Her impulsive and irrational character leads to an attack of fury with unpredictable consequences.
Adriana Ugarte is Manuela
Adriana Ugarte is Manuela, a young woman who lives alone in a cabin where she studies Andalusian wetlands. She has settled there after specializing in ornithology and touring half the world following migrations.
At 28, her life revolves around birds, those who live there and those passing through like her. She watches and photographs them every day, and she could talk about each one of them for hours. What she doesn’t talk about to anyone is what she left in Madrid ten years ago and why.
Cosette Silguero is Alba
The young actress Cosette Silguero will play Alba. A few kilometers from Manuela lives Alba, a seven-year-old girl who never has her breakfast served. Her mother, Yolanda, works at night as a pole dancer and sleeps in the daytime. Her boyfriend, Lucho, is not there to care of a girl who is not his.
Actually, he’s not there for that or anything else, because he lives off of Yolanda. The house is a mess of objects and a lack of schedules.
