María José’s life moves back and forth between the monotony of classes at the university, her eternally distant parents, rugby training, and dares with her gay friend. Emotionally disconnected from her environment, when she meets Javier, she tries to start a relationship with him. But all her efforts to live a “normal” life cannot succeed. She is carrying a secret that everybody avoids noticing: she is a few months into her pregnancy. Costa Rica’s 2019 Academy Award submission for the Oscars as well as to the Goyas: Best Iberoamerican Film.
