    • Synopsis
    • Lourdes is a "plain Jane" constrained in her interaction with others and who has never even kissed a man. In contrast with her uninhibited friend, Lourdes spends time online with a guy friend she has never seen and uneasily pleasures herself to her own dismay. She diligently takes care of her handicapped father since her mother abandoned them years ago. One day her mother returns reopening old wounds. This is a story of dedication, loneliness and physiological traumas of a young woman in her mid twenties.
