In an old Mexican neighborhood, Elena is alone in her world. Felix miraculously comes into her life and shows her how to access other universes. He shares secret spaces with her that will make her recognize that her world can be deeper than previously thought, and also that there is much more to a blind child, like Felix, than just his visual impairment.
