The obsession of a teenager to compose an operatic aria about love and the meaning of pain throws her into unveiling the secrets of her grandmother, who is about to turn 100 years old, and of her mother, who is torn between divorce and suicide. Three generations of women whose personal stories lead them to face estrangement, despair, and other generational struggles. Nothing more complicated for Martirio, the protagonist, than to flesh out the pain of her own loneliness. This is a subtle and delicate performance that adds doses of humor and innocence, culminating with the protagonist singing her opera repertoire while rediscovering her strength and passion.
