Celia, an 11-year-old girl, studies in a Catholic girls’ school in Zaragoza, Spain, and lives with her mother. Brisa, a new classmate recently arrived from Barcelona, pushes her towards a new stage in her life: adolescence. In small acts of rebellion, Celia finds the courage to express her growing distrust of the value system governing her world in 1990s Spain, as questions start to form about her own family background — a topic on which her mother has always kept silent.
