The daughter of Chilean exiles and recently divorced from her philandering husband, 35-year-old Ana is offered the opportunity of a lifetime: to present, in competition, a design for a new tourist resort in Los Cabos, Mexico. But her already difficult life is thrown further off course when her mother, who constantly harangues her about her personal and professional decisions, reconnects with a long-lost love through Facebook and decides to travel alone to Chile, leaving her husband behind. Velázquez crafts a powerful tale about motherhood, displacement and the pressures of modern life.
