    • Synopsis
    • VIRGINIA is about to have forty years old and have just lost her third pregnancy. She travels to visit her father, who she has not seen in a long time. Miguel Angel´s homosexuality was the cause of a hard family breakdown. He openly rejects Virginia´s visit who, with a great fabulating capacity, gives him and herself, the illusion of a new pregnancy. Facing the prospect of being a grandfather, he is softened and allow what has been impossible in years: a happy family weekend. The precipitated coexistence becomes a duel of lies. She pretends a healthy pregnancy while he pretends that life smiles him. That deception in which the two accept each other is short. It crumbles when Dario, Virginia´s couple, comes to find her. Miguel Angel becomes a witness to the sadness of his daughter and Virginia, whom his father has finally opened the doors, maybe realizes that they have been more present in each others lifes than believed.
