Set in Spain, this is a generational story of two daughters who lost their parents as children during a fire: a good mother mother carrying a hard life upon her shoulders, and an illegal hairdresser whose shop is the meeting point for all the neighbourhood gossips. When the mother's drunken and abusive partner assaults her daughter, catastrophy strikes. The daughter murders the partner in self defence and the mother does all that she can to protect her little girl being caught out by her aunt, or the nosey townspeople. But the aunt has a family secret of her own to keep which she divulges to the daughter, that would put the mother on an emotional rollercoaster. Will the truth be revealed?
