Climaterio Selva’s early menopause coincides with the death of her mother. In an attempt to appease the grief and the changes she is experiencing, Selva decides to sell her childhood home, located in a village in the center of Catalonia. But when she gets there, menopause continues to transform her, causing a metamorphosis that synchronizes her with the pain of nature and the fauna plundered and contaminated by the macro-farms in the area.
