    • Synopsis
    • Personal problems send free spirit Cristina scurrying for the comforts of her family home (left to her AA older brother Mauricio by their deceased parents). The siblings -now dysfunctional adults- struggle to find their footing be it because of Mauricio's relationship with a new girlfriend (20 years his junior) or Cristina's hopeless struggle to heal the past. Some people are never meant to get back together and Cristina's arrival falls on them like an asteroid from the sky.
