Manuela (Sara Montoya) is an only child of wealthy, devoted and well-meaning parents who are part of Colombia’s high-society. She has an ambitious boyfriend and her best friend Adriana (Matilde de los Milagros Londoño) to confide in. Despite appearances, Manuela’s perfect smile is as superficial as the lifestyle for which she has been groomed. A secret love for Adriana boils inside of her and as the film progresses; the façade of her pristine life begins to crumble. The news of her unexpected pregnancy sets her on a collision course with her deepest desire and a society that keeps her in a mold she desperately wants to escape. When she finally begins to rebel against the social confinement of her elite upbringing, Manuela clashes against her family’s expectations for her future trajectory.
