Alba is eleven years old. She spends most of her time in silence and she loves tiny little animals. One night her mother gets worse and has to be taken to a hospital. Alba has to move to Igor’s place, who she barely knows.
Igor`s tender efforts to get close to her, finding friends at school, her first kiss, visiting her mother in the hospital, are some of the situations that pave Alba`s journey to adolescence and to accept her family.
