SYNOPSIS:

Martina travels with her mother to Villa Mercedes, the city where their relatives live. After twelve years of absence, she meets with her cousins, whom she has not seen since childhood. They grew up apart, so she does not feel they are part of her family. Their mothers have a distant relationship due to problems in the family business. The youngsters in the family are going through a key stage in their lives, each dealing with a future- related crisis, and the family being apart is not doing any help either. A tragedy brings them together, making them go through a journey and get to know each other again.
