Manuela is a young woman who lives by herself in a cabin where she studies the wetlands in Andalusia. At 28, her life revolves around birds, those that live there and those that are just passing by like her.
Alba lives a few kilometres away, she’s a 7-year-old girl who never has someone to make breakfast for her. Her mother, Yolanda, works at night as a pole dancer and sleeps during the day. Her mother’s boyfriend, Lucho, is not willing to take care of a girl who is not his. The house is a turmoil of objects and schedules. Alba goes to school by any means, although many times she hasn’t eaten anything that day.
When Manuela meets little Alba, they will start a journey that will force Manuela to face the demons of her past and to question the backbones of her life.
