At the age of 30, Fabiola Neira returns to her birthplace where everyone regards with her suspicion, and sees her only as the woman who years earlier moved to the capital for work. Though sheʼs retired from her previous profession, the road home is still arduous and painful for Fabiola. She must find a job and also rebuild her relationships with her father and older sister. After landing a supervisory position at a small metal recycling company, an unlikely friendship with her bossʼ 16-year-old son makes her homecoming easier.
