Synopsis

'I did it. I made love for the first time.' · 'And how was it?' · 'It was weird. But it was nice. I think it’s something I have to learn with time.'


Paola grows up as the youngest of three sisters in Quito, Ecuador. Her father, a pastor, abandons the family to return to his Columbian homeland. Dreams are dashed, undertakings fail, love flourishes and fades and life rolls on at a spirited pace. Paola matures in the midst of this chaos, taking everything it has to offer while staying true to herself in the process. Surrounded by her mother and two older sisters, Paola attempts to find her place in this world.
