17 year-old Valeria (Ana Valeria Becceril) is pregnant by her teenage boyfriend, but she hasn't informed her absent mother April (Emma Suárez). When her sister Clara (Joanna Larequi) goes behind her back and calls April, their mother arrives full of concern, support and tenderness. But once the baby is born, it soon becomes clear why Valeria wanted to keep April as far away as possible.
