    • Synopsis
    • Miguel Gallardo lives in Barcelona. His daughter Maria lives in the Canary Islands with her mother.
      Like many other children with autism, Maria lives on her own island. For a long time, Miguel and Maria have travelled the distance that separates this island from the rest of the world.
      This is the story of one of those journeys.
      The film begins at the Barcelona Airport, where Miguel and María are ready to go on holiday to Grand Canary Island. There, they plan to spend a few days at a beach hotal full of foreign tourists, a surreal setting that does not often accommodate a single father with an autistic daughter.
