The 30-seven year old Rosa is not a rebellious woman. She always does what is expected of her—until she finds out from her mother that her alleged father is not the real one, which turns her world upside down. The time comes for her to abandon the structured routine and set off on a journey into her own self. Is the destination of this spiritual journey predetermined? How will she discover her identity? How will she find a strong independent woman within? The latest film of the maker of Brainstorm is a moving story, consistent with a growing feminist wave in Iberian cinema. Winner of Teddy Award at the last Berlinale.
