    • Large eyes, pale skin, hurt fingertips. Alba is eleven. She wears a plastic scoliosis brace and her nose frecuently bleeds. She tries to hide her extreme shyness and to relieve her anxiety by building puzzles.
      One afternoon Alba silently packs her bags. She has to move to her father’s place, whom she has not seen for a long of time and barely remembers. Igor is happy to have Alba at home. This represents the opportunity of knowing her daughter, of being a real father and changing his lonely life.
      Living with Igor is unbearable for her. She feels ashamed of him, his manners, and his obsessive hobbies. Her father intrigues her, but the fear of resembling him is too strong. Igor is capable of showing the world Alba’s secret: oddness.
